Favourite stage direction: “For a moment Blanche and Harry stand face to face, quite close to one another, she provocative, taunting, half defying, half inviting him to advance, in a flush of undisguised animal excitement. It suddenly flashes on him that all this ferocity is erotic, that she is making love to him. His eye lights up: a cunning expression comes into the corners of his mouth; with a heavy assumption of indifference he walks straight back to his chair, and plants himself in it with his arms folded.” (George Bernard Shaw’s Widowers’ Houses)
