The Faithful (1915) written by John Masefield and produced at the Theatre Guild, New York, under the direction of Irving Pichel and with the stage designed by Lee Simonson?, in 1919

Two scenes from The Faithful (1915)  written by the British playwright John Masefield (1878 - 1967) and produced at the Theatre Guild (founded in 1918), New York City, under the direction of Irving Pichel and with the stage designed by Lee Simonson, in 1919
 

 
 
 


"The Faithful.              
By John Masefield. Produced by The Theatre Guild. Staged by Irving Pichel. New York, 1919."

"Theatre Guild, a theatrical society founded in  New York City in 1918 for the production of high-quality, noncommercial American and foreign plays. The guild, founded by Lawrence Langner (1890–1962), departed from the usual theatre practice in that its board of directors shared the responsibility for choice of plays, management, and production. The first two seasons, which included plays by Jacinto Benavente, St. John Ervine, John Masefield, and August Strindberg, demonstrated the artistic soundness of the plan."
