MGM·Lion Joan Littlewood and the People's Theatre (10) RE: Joan Littlewood and the People's Theatre 10 May 16


Re the story of her response to Sir Richard Eyre's polite and indubitably complimentary request:-

Yet another example of a phenomenon that so often exercises, and of which Ms Littlewood, for all her indisputable directorial brilliance, was so prime an example --

viz —— why do so many well·meaning would-be do·gooders seem to think that being a 'progesssive' intrinsically and of itself bespeaks the necessity for constantly displaying the manners of an ill-bred guttersnipe? Whom do they imagine themselves possibly to be impressing by such idiotic attitudinising? What benefit to their selfrighteously oh-so-virtuous social causes do they imagine such uncivilised antisociability will convey?

Genuinely puzzled.....!
