Abstract

From Harcourt Williams, ‘Enter George Bernard Shaw’, Journal of The Vic-Wells Association, July 1956. Harcourt (Ernest George) Williams (1880–1957), actor and director, became associated with Shaw’s work when he played the parts of Valentine in You Never Can Tell and the Count O’Dowda in Fanny’s First Play in London productions before the First World War. On his appointment as Director at the Old Vic Theatre in 1929, he encouraged Lilian Baylis to introduce plays by Shaw into the repertory. The 1932–3 season opened with a production of Caesar and Cleopatra.
