Undated letter [1981?] written in black ink by Brian Friel on headed paper of the "Field Day Theatre Company", Guildhall, Derry "at rehearsal" to Christopher Fitz-Simon. Friel says it would take a fortnight to answer his query accurately, going through files - "in general nearly all" [last word underlined] "plays have been translated and performed in several languages" [he gives examples] and cites that "Translations" is "being translated into German, Polish, French, Norwegian, Dutch at the moment". Friel ends the letter to him saying on the verso "Sorry you can't make the opening of T.S. / Ever Brian." This presumably is Friel's translation of Anton Chekhov's "Three Sisters" which was staged in the Guildhall in Derry 8 - 12 Sep 1981 and then toured the island of Ireland in Autumn of that year.
