October 1926
America;10/16/1926, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p18
The author talks about the Free Theater founded by André Antoine in 1887, which is a playhouse that gives unknown dramatists an opportunity and aims to support the form of realism. According to him, Lugné-Poe, another dissenter, who later established the Théâe de l'Oeuvre, also welcomed unknown plays of dramatists especially to the foreign dramatists. Yet, he says, they turned back to their autocratic procedure, officially favoring only the plays of famous others due to good financial profits.
