Mike: The Lady Esther production of John Galsworthy's "The Apple Tree" you've found may be better than his Summer Theater one; it is certainly in better condition than any other copies I've heard of either. The story itself is a little gem, especially if one comes upon it innocently for the first time, for the whole tragedy is really foretold in the first line or two. Welles' dramatization, lean and simple, is particularly poignant and sad when we consider his stories of the walking tours he took in Ireland and Spain, declared by him the happiest times of his life. There must have been a knowing quality in the performances of both him and the Irish Geraldine Fitzgerald. I wonder if anyone can tell us if they both played dual roles here: the wandering gent and the rustic story teller; the wife and the country girl? That would be clotted-cream on a heartbreakingly amorous cake.
