Next Time I'll Sing To You
Alexander James Mason was born in 1857, in the village of Great Canfield in Essex. He had one brother. Their tyrannical father died in 1890. Their mother died in 1906 and in the same year James became a hermit, living in a hut in a field and cutting himself off from the life of the outside world; even from his brother who, though he left food daily for James, never again apparently saw or spoke to him. In 942, James Mason died.
In Next Time I'll Sing to You, the playwright Rudge, aided by a group of actors performing to a prepared script, nightly explores the possible meanings of this, apparently negative act, and so brings into question the meaning in every man's life.
