It is very interesting news that Mr. T. S. Eliot's magnificent play on the martyrdom of St. Thomas of Canterbury is shortly to be seen by London audiences.
It is being produced on All Saints, Nov. 1, and thenceforward on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8.30, and on Saturdays at 2.30, at the Mercury Theatre, Notting Hill Gate, better known as the Ballet Club.
This great opportunity is due to the initiative of Mr. Ashley Dukes, who saw the play at Canterbury and determined to give it a London life.
The production will again be in the hands of Mr. E. Martin Browne; the part of Becket will be played by Mr. Robert Speaight, who created it last summer, and the chorus is once more being trained by Miss Elsie Fogerty.
It is to be hoped that the public will rally in large numbers to see this play by a great modern poet about a great medieval saint.
