ARTS AND LETTERS:
Hostage' Rejects
Social Convention

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

By GAIL BLUMBERG
"The Hostage" by Brendan
Behan can be called a frank,
rowdy and abandoned farce; im-.
pudent in nature, yet thoroughly~
laced with a sardonic, sometimes
bitter attack on human folly; re-
ligion, politics, economics, respec-
tability, the pointlessness of war;
in short, a complete rejection and
reaction against convention.
The play is set in a Dublin?
lodging house where Leslie, a
young English soldier captured by
the Irish Republican Army is held
as hostage in reprisal for an Irish
patriot shortly to be hanged by
the British in Belfast. The storyl
shows him in terms of his effect'
on the members of the lodging
house, exploring the conflicts be-
tween their natural human affec-
tion for the boy and'their devo-
tion to the cause of Irish unifica-
tion.
In speaking of Behan's play,
which will be performed by the
Association of Producing Artists
beginning Sept. 30, director Steph-
an Porter described it as a social
attack against old rigid ideas and
points of view. The major charac-
ters in the play, he explained, are
inflicted with leftover hatreds and
bitterness. They are guilty of
foggy, irrational and confused
thought.
Old Hatreds
Their resentment of the English
and the memory of the past war
with England, which should be old
business, keeps recurring. Their
warmth and compassion for the
young soldier is stifled by old
conditioned reflexes, which as
Behan declares, are inhuman.
"The Hostage," in keeping with
its attack on conventionality, re-
jects the stage conventions as well.
The play is a free-form spon-
taneous work, Porter said, as he
began an explanation of its crea-

STEPHEN PORTER
tion. It was based on the personal
experience of Behan his early in-c
volvement with the Irish Republi-
can Army and his years of Dublin
pub-life.c
It was first produced by the
Theatre Workshop in London un-
der the direction of Joan Little-,
wood, who was trying at the time.
to break down traditional conven-c
tions in her actors. She took thef
script from Behan's dictation
which left her great freedom in
shaping the play.
Free Speech
Miss Littlewood encouraged her
actors to improve the lines-to be
frank and free, taking from their
own experiences. Much of the
language is bawdy and shocking, '
often a mixture of blasphemy, ob-
scenity and irreverence. In ad-c
dition, all gradations of sexual ex-
perience are presented.
The first production and all
those following bear the marks of
her work as much as those of its
author, Porter declared. Tech-3
niques and perspective are shifted
in the middle of a scene. The
actor is in character one moment,
and is almost another personality:
the next. The address is first
between characters then to theI
audience, and next to the actors.
as actors. In the middle of a1
serious speech, there is a pausei
for a joke or a song.
The set, which Porter describes
as semi-realistic, represents two
rooms, one of which is designated
by a raised platform with an
imaginary connecting wall. At
times the characters pass right
through the barrier-oblivious to
it, while at other points they are
very careful to mark out the
proper entrance to the room. In
much the same way, actors step
off the stage and roam about,
seemingly at will.
Continuity
The large quantity of ad-lib
material in the play and the ac-
companying music, which was
never notated has been passed on
by people connected with the
original production and added to
in subsequent presentations, Por-
ter pointed out. "The Hostage" has
since run successfully on the
Broadway and off-Broadway stage.
The printed play bears only a
hollow resemblance to the final
work; thus APA actors Donald
Moffat, who toured with the
Broadway production and Paddy
Croft, who originated the role she
will be playing, were able to com-
municate the material of the orig-
