In September 1941, Eugene O'Neill's Ah, Wilderness featured the professional debut of a young student from RADA named Richard Attenborough, who received glowing notices.
His "mixed impressions" of what he calls "comic agony" is a collection of thirteen essays on plays as diverse and seemingly unrelated as O'Neill's rather tame Ah, Wilderness to a curious and obscure play The Breast of Tiresias by Guillaume Apollinaire, "the most famous unknown play of the century" (143).
At first glance his choice of Ah, Wilderness would seem peculiar in light of the other plays; however Bermel proffers some interesting tidbits regarding this somewhat benign text.
