520 |a "What place does the dramatic critic have in the theatre today? For whom does he write? Whom does he influence and why? Is he, in fact, necessary? These questions are posed and answered in this book by a brilliant modern playwright, a famous contemporary actor, and eight distinguished dramatic critics. Christopher Fry writes, at length, about his own and other people's experience of critics. What he expects of them and how they have helped or failed him. The critics explain, as succinctly as they are obliged to criticize in their columns, what their own approach is to their work, and Alec Guinness provides a provoking introduction. Presiding over the discussion is the cartoonist Ronald Searle, who contributes eighteen pen caricatures in his most successful manner."
