Basil Macdonald Hastingss dramatization of Joseph Conrads Victory enjoyed a run of over eighty performances at Londons Globe Theatre in 1919 with actor-producer Marie Löhr in the role of Lena. It remains the most successful stage adaptation of Conrads fiction and Conrad himself was closely involved in the development of the script. This generously illustrated volume presents the complete script of Macdonald Hastingss play, the collected theatre reviews of the production, and the stage censors confidential report on the script. The volume also features a substantial introduction placing the original novel and its subsequent dramatization in a stimulating critical and cultural context.
