Arms and the Man: III
From an interview with Yorke Stephens under ‘Music and the Drama’, Daily Chronicle, 10 November 1906. Yorke Stephens (1860–1937), Irish actor, created Bluntschli, and his memories of the 1894 rehearsals suggest that Shaw’s directing skills and technique were in the process of development (cf. Eva Moore below, p. 134). Stephens also created Valentine in the Stage Society production of You Never Can Tell on 26 November 1899.
