Scope and Content

With Joyce Redman, actress. Topics covered include: the possibility of Redman appearing in Susannah and the Elders at the request of RD and H.K. Ayliff in 1946, and her inability to do so; a play called Carrington House she is sending RD, which has been praised by Stephen Spender, but which RD returns; RD's invitation to Redman to play Beatrice to his Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing in the West End in 1946, which she is forced to turn down due to an American commitment; and her best wishes for RD [in A Sleeping Clergyman] at the Criterion in June 1947.
