Synopsis

Basil Macdonald Hastings's dramatization of Joseph Conrad's Victory enjoyed a run of over eighty performances at London's Globe Theatre in 1919 with actor-producer Marie Loehr in the role of Lena. It remains the most successful stage adaptation of Conrad's fiction and Conrad himself was closely involved in the development of the script.

This generously illustrated volume presents the complete script of Macdonald Hastings's play, the collected theatre reviews of the production, and the stage censor's confidential report on the script. The volume also features a substantial introduction placing the original novel and its subsequent dramatization in a stimulating critical and cultural context.
