Abstract

George Bernard Shaw, writing in 1890, complained that a new production of As You Like It had been ruined by the producer's having attempted to reduce the play's length by the common method of "cutting out a bit here and chunk there until the lines are few enough to fit. But somehow," he went on, "the shorter you make your play in this fashion, the more tedious it becomes."
