Catalogue Note

The dramatized version of The Secret Agent was written between October 1919 and the spring of 1920. It was first published in the autumn of 1921, in 52 copies, and none were sent to copyright depository libraries. After some delays the play was first performed at the Ambassador Theatre on 3 November 1922, but was damned by the critics and public and closed after just eleven performances.
