Description

The Admirable Bashville is a product of the British law of copyright. As that law stands at present, the first person who patches up a stage version of a novel, however worthless and absurd that version may be, and has it read by himself and a few confederates to another confederate who has paid for admission in a hall licensed for theatrical performances, secures the stage rights of that novel, even as against the author himself; and the author must buy him out before he can touch his own work for the purposes of the stage...As a good Socialist I do not at all object to the limitation of my right of property in my own works to a comparatively brief period, followed by complete Communism: in fact, I cannot see why the same salutary limitation should not be applied to all property rights whatsoever; but a system which enables any alert sharper to acquire property rights in my stories as against myself and the rest of the community would, it seems to me, justify a rebellion if authors were numerous and warlike enough to make one."

Shaw, from the Preface) Cast: Lydia/Narrator: Arielle Lipshaw Cashel Byron: Algy Pug Bob Mellish: Anthony Lucian: mb Bashville: Matthew Reece A Newsboy/Master of the Revels: TriciaG Cetewayo: Peter Bishop Lord Worthington: Alan Paradise/Adelaide Gisborne: Elizabeth Klett Audio edited by Arielle Lipshaw
