(...)I had great pleasure reading your play which I think to be a work of very high quality. Both the characters and the language are so deeply evocative and, of course, mysterious. In a way - and I mean this as a compliment, believe me - it seems to me to be more of dramatic poem than a play, in the same way as some of Harold Pinter's later plays are dramatic poems. I congratulate you most sincerely on your achievement and thank you again for sending the play to me. It is not, as you modestly describe it in your inscription, 'a small play', not at all!
