A Celebrated Interview

Part of the Interviews and Recollections book series (IR)


It was almost June and I wanted Brendan to come away to Connemara, away from the strain of the past months in London. But no sooner had we returned to Dublin than Duncan Melville, the press agent for Theatre Workshop, called us. Would Brendan go back to London to be interviewed by Malcolm Muggeridge1 for the BBC? Brendan had not appeared on television before. He was nervous at the idea, but Duncan assured it would be good publicity for his play and improve its prospects of transferring to the West End. Brendan agreed and decided we would go by air. What was the point of the long journey by sea and train for a single interview?
