Laconic response to the impresario Percy Burton: "All right: whatever is usual with the Half Hours With The Best Dramatists. I forget what we did before; but no doubt we can do it again".

Shaw spent many summers at the Hydropathic Hotel in Torquay. His 1897 play "You Never Can Tell" is set in Torquay, satirizing the upper-class holidaymakers.

With pinch folds.
