The Burden : A Play in One Act (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Burden: A Play in One Act Only the barest stage directions as to business have been given. These may be made as complicated as desired, the action offering an ambitious producer the opportunity for various striking pictures. Great care should be exercised lest mendel be portrayed as a feeble, victimized old man. He should be pictured in the early scenes as a.man of quiet dignity, the master in his own household. He does not yield but remains superior to the bullying of the two men. When at last he breaks down before sarah's grief, the actor should express a truly strong soul bending beneath fate. Again, there is a temptation to play isadore, as-a heartless, young bully, savage even in his humor. Isadore, however, should be given in a whining, self-pitying key, the character never growing harsh or really aggressive until he feels that he is forced to fight in his own defense.
