Heard and not seen

Prompted by the broadcast of Joanna Murray Smith's play, Honour, The Daily Telegraph's Gillian Reynolds sings the praises of drama being heard and not seen.
The listener is probably alone, doesn't know the expression on a face or a character's movements but, once the right connection is made, can imagine it all, directing, pointing the inner eye's camera, getting close-ups at all the right times. What the author has written, what the characters are saying becomes personal, collaborative, creative and we become passionately attached.
