One from the archives: “I must make myself clear about this question of identity. I am a playwright, and the only valid statement I can ever make is in the theatre, not in a Sunday newspaper. Journalism is a poor substitute for art, even bad art. But, unfortunately, most people prefer journalism — and bad journalism at that.” (John Osborne’s “Fighting Talk” [1957])
