- Waste [play]
Play by late English actor/ playwright/ director Harley Granville-Barker. The play was banned by Lord Chamberlain on its release.
"Backstage at a hung parliament, visionary Independent Henry Trebell is co-opted by the Tories to push through a controversial Bill. Pursuing his cause with missionary zeal, he's barely distracted by his brief affair with a married woman until she suffers a lethal backstreet abortion. Threatened by public scandal, the Establishment closes ranks and coolly seals the fate of an idealistic man."
