Introduction in Four Scenes

  • Frances Gray


In December 1907 the tranquil spectacle of a West End production was disrupted by a piece of Rough Theatre: the entrance of Mrs Beerbohm Tree proclaiming, ‘I have just come from the Court, the Court where young Robert Wood stood in peril of his life. I am glad to be able to tell you that the jury found him not guilty… I was one of those who burst into tears, others burst into cheers which were taken up, echoed and re-echoed by thousands on the streets’ (Hogarth 1954: 211).
