Letter to the Editor ? _^ ? Geraldton Repertory Work PLAY READING DEFENDED Sir, — May I say just a few words in defence of the Geraldtou Repertory j Club, whose activities were criticised j so adversely recently by one of your ? caders. Heinjr responsible for the recent reading of 'IJelinda,' I feel it behoves me to make a few comments in justi fication of this activity. It is obvious that 'Quoudoiig' lias not attended a j play -reading for saue time or he wouM not be so ready to condemn them whilst i lively admitting that play -readings as J such were originally not very entertain- j ing, I .contend that they have now been 1 developed to a much more interest! ug lorm. In fact, they differ from a com plete performance only in that the lines | are read and n-»t memorised. This J form c.f activity is i-l;'al for people who I are keen to take part, but find that they j have not the time at their disposal u- ? memorise lines or attend many rehearsals, and I don't think I am being unduly...
