During the last four or five months I have been
engaged on a play of my own called The Heretic, which
Goldblatt has promised to put on next winter. I am,
however, not quite satisfied with it and am re-writing
bits of it. I would like to send it to you but have
already Imposed on you: I think what I need is to see
a play of my own produced, and then I shall realise
whether or not I have any original dramatic talent.
Like many another I think I have, and I only hope I am
right, but won’t be surprised if I’m wrong.

Yours ever

John Boyd
