Scope and Content

With Stephen Mitchell, theatre manager. Topics covered include: a request that RD keep the play Spring 1600 in mind for the Westminster in 1946; the possibility of RD producing The Captain's Lamp in 1947; Mitchell's plans in 1951 for a film version of Alec Coppel's Mr Denning Drives North, and the possibility of RD playing 'Thomas Denning', a part which he turns down due to lack of enthusiasm.
