“It Is Noticeable That Anyone Who Has Tasted The Heady Wine Of The Theatre Even On Its Merest Fringes Or The Menial Of Its Jobs Is Cut Off From The Outside World Forever After The World Of The Theatre Is As Closed As A Tribe And As Removed From Other Civilian Worlds As A Gypsy Encampment And Those Who Enter It Are Spoiled For Anything Else And Are Tainted With Its Insidious Lure For The Rest Of Their Lives”.
