Not so, MacColl, to whom the spiritual values are the realities. The result is an absorbing play, although ‘play ‘ is hardly the right description. Rather it’s  an absorbing and exciting experience to watch and listen to his ideas on the stage, expressed through speech, mime, dance and song.Uncommon title and in very collectable condition 92pp First Edition [1948] The Play was first performed in 1946 at Newcastle People’s Theatre Postage: (Free Insurance Is Included)  Sent 1st Class:  Free sent 1st Class within the UK 1-2 working days from dispatchSent Air-Mail:    £9.95 (Europe) 5 -10 working days from dispatchSent Air-Mail:    £12.95 (Rest of the World) 7 – 14 working days from dispatch
