[nice clean copy, dog-earing to the corners of the first couple of pages, appears to be missing its original cover (all editorial matter is present)]. The highlight of this issue of this short-lived (1936-1938) publication is "Senora Carrar's Rifles," a one-act play by Bertolt Brecht, set in Spain during the Civil War; this is possibly its first publication in English (in a translation by Keene Wallis). Other contents include: a symposium on "Scenery or No Scenery?," with contributions from Hallie Flanagan, Marc Blitzstein, Mordecai Gorelik, Lee Strasberg, and others; "Warriors of the Theatre: China," a letter to the New Theatre League by Agnes Smedley; "America Needs the Fine Arts Bill," an article by Irwin Shaw; "Together," a one-act play by Alice Holdship Ware; and "The Tired Ostrich," a one-act play by Barbara Corcoran.
