Give SAE
TITANIC

26th October 1979

England.

Dear Mr. Stone,

In The Guardian on Tuesday October 2nd you
wrote a most interesting article on a new
musical THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, which
had its world premiere at the Deutsche Oper
Berlin.

As THE TITANIC was a Belfast built ship we
have have a particular interest in her fate.
I was wondering could you give me some
information about the musical: for instance,
is there a libretto available yet? Where
would we write for further information which
we would require.

I don't expect you know our theatre, but 1
think I can modestly say that we are the
most important theatre in the North of Ireland,
and it is our policy to do a wide range of work.

I hope you don't mind my writing to you, and would
be most grateful for your co-operation, I enclose
a SAE for reply.

Yours sincerely,

(John Boyd)
Literary Advisor,
THE LYRIC PLAYERS THEATRE

P.S. We recieve an annual subvention from the Arts
Council, Norther Ireland,
