Dramatising Belloc

Sia,—Your reviewer of the new Hilaire Belloc anthology makes a passing mention of Belloc, the Sussex patriot. May I be allowed to call the attention of your readers to Lord Duncannon's dramatic arrange- ment of Belloc's The Four Men. This play—which has been chosen as the Festival Play for the 1951 Festival of Sussex—will open at Chichester on May 19th, and will tour the county for six weeks during May and June. It will be produced by Mr. Robert Speaight, who will also play "Myielf," and the east will include Lord Dungannon and Mr. Ian Wallace. The music has been arranged by Mr. David PonsOrtbl,, from original melodies.—Yours truly, ROBERT PONSONBY.
