Epitaph for George Dillon : a play in three acts by John Osborne( Book )

32 editions published between 1958 and 1986 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an early John Osborne play, one of two plays that he wrote in collaboration with Anthony Creighton. In this play, George Dillon is a dedicated but jobless actor, an ambitious and serious playwright. But as the months go by and no parts are offered, his manuscripts returned, his life becomes a nightmare of anonymity, petty debt, and enforced idleness. When he goes to live with the Elliot family, the nightmare changes but does not lift. Eventually, George Dillon forges his "success". Yet, his epitaph is a judgment on all of us: "He never allowed himself one day of peace. He made no one happy. He loved no one successfully. And, in the end, it doesn't really matter."

'I have injured no man's reputation, taken no man's property, attacked no man's person, violated no oath, taught no immorality. I was asked a question and answered it openly.' Cheltenham, 1842. George Jacob Holyoake is a poor young teacher, making his way from Birmingham to Bristol to visit a friend who has been imprisoned for publishing a journal that criticizes the establishment. When he makes a stop in Cheltenham to address a lecture, his words and his overwhelming commitment to speaking the truth will change his life forever. Arrested and tried for blasphemy, and separated from his starving wife and child, Holyoake is faced with the choice of conforming or staying true to his beliefs in a time of injustice and intolerance. Based on the true story of the last man to stand trial for blasphemy in England, A Subject of Scandal and Concern was originally written for television in 1960 starring Richard Burton and Rachel Roberts, and directed by Tony Richardson, and was first seen onstage in Nottingham in the early 1960s.
