Dickinson by David Allen
During Malcolm Blaylock’s time as Artistic Director, the political and socially critical flavour of some of the plays became a characteristic feature of La Boite’s artistic work during his time.
Dickinson reminded critic Veronica Kelly of “the deadly bitterness of the struggle against a predatory and bloodthirsty capitalism, culminating in … the Depression”, in a production “of a fine standard, with La Boite’s mix of inexperienced and accomplished actors in as near as possible a state of homogeneous achievement”.[i]
