10 Three Notes On
William Congreve
Samuel Johnson on William Congreve
But whatever objections may be made, either to his comic or
tragic excellence, they are lost, at once, in a the blaze of
admiration, when it is remembered that he had produced his
plays before he had passed his thirtieth year; before other men,
even such as are to shine in eminence, have passed their
probation of literature. Among all the efforts of early genius
which literary history records, I doubt whether any one can be
produced that more surpasses the common limits of nature than
the plays of Congreve.
William Hazlitt on William Congreve
His style is inimitable, nay perfect. It is the highest model of
comic dialogue. Every sentence is replete with sense and satire,
conveyed in the most pointed terms. Every page presents a
shower of brilliant conceits, it is a tissue of epigrams in prose, is a
new triumph of wit, a new conquest over dullness. There is a
peculiar flavour in the very words. His comedy bears every mark
of being a spirited copy taken off and carefully revised from the
society of his time, exhibiting all the sprightliness, ease, and
animation of familiar conversation, with the correctness of a
finished composition.
Voltaire on William Congreve
The late Mr. Congreve raised the glory of comedy to a greater
height than any other English writer before or since his time. He
wrote only a few plays, but they are all excellent in their kind
They abound with characters all of which are shadowed with the
utmost delicacy. He himself spoke of his works as of trifles that
were beneath him; and hinted to me that I should visit him upon
no other foot than that of a gentleman. I answered that had he
been so unfortunate as to be a mere gentleman, I should never
have come to see him.

COMING UP
Major Barbara
by
George Bernard Shaw
directed by
Antony Holland
January 15
1986
25
Although hailed as the master
philosopher of modern drama, for
whom the stage was the
battlefield of ideas and
ideologies, Bernard Shaw's lasting
merit undoubtedly lies in his near-
perfect sense for effective theatre.
Gifted with a fast and sure wit
and an amazing power to create
lively characters, his plays have
earned him a secure place in the
modern repertory. MAJOR
BARBARA, first performed in
1905, has endured as one of his
finest achievements. The
encounter between a millionaire
armaments manufacturer, his
Salvation Army daughter and her
fiance, a professor of Greek,
makes for some splendid theatre,
that is both thought-provoking
and wonderfully funny.

WHO'S AFRAID OF
VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Hailed as a masterpiece of contemporary theatre when it first
premiered almost 23 years ago,
WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA
WOOLF7 has become a classic in
our time. Albee's seering tale
examines the thin line between
truth and illusion and our use of
both to survive our less than
perfect lives. The Vancouver Playhouse is particularly pleased to
announce that William Hutt will
return to Vancouver to portray
George opposite Janet Wright as
Martha. WHO'S AFRAID OF
VIRGINIA WOOLF? is sponsored
by Grand Marnier.
