The actress must not make of this sentence an affair of her own. She must hand it over for criticism. She must make it possible for the audience to understand the motives behind it. She must make protest possible. In the Artef Players Collective in New York (1935), I saw a stage version of Samuel Ornitz’ Haunch, Paunch and Jowl, which showed how an east-side boy rose to be a corrupt lawyer. The theatre could not play the piece. And yet scenes like this were in it. Sitting in the street in front of his house, the young lawyer gives legal advice at very low prices.
Certain gestures with both hands represent the forcible opening of a door, and so forth. The stage stays unchanged though articles of furniture are brought on during the play. All this has been known for a long time and can scarcely be taken over by us in toto. And one is accustomed to regard an artistic phenomenon in toto—as a whole. However, if you want to study one particular effect among many you have to break with this custom. In the Chinese theatre the “alienation effect” is achieved in the following way.

There are people who cannot conceive of any improvement in conditions; conditions seem good enough to them. Whatever may happen to petroleum, they make a profit out of it. And they feel, after all, that they are getting rather old. They can scarcely expect many more years of life. So why continue to learn? ”4 But there are also people who have not yet “had their turn,” who are discontented with the way things are, who have an immense practical interest in learning, who want orientation badly, who know they are lost without learning—these are the best and most ambitious learners.
