Here the dramatic form was much more definite, though still not attempting acted or actable drama.
The thing is to pack them all into a neat little framework and then act what is actable.
It is significant to note that Mr. Bottomley's pieces are excellent in proportion as they are actable.
It is eminently "actable," presenting striking tableaus and situations.
The most intelligent performer is he who recognizes most surely this "actable" and distinguishes in it the more from the less.
A conclusive objection to the drama as an actable play is that three of the four main episodes are fragmentary.
