Epitaph for George Dillon, a play in three acts by John Osborne( Book )

71 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an early John Osborne play, one of two plays that he wrote in collaboration with Anthony Creighton. In this play, George Dillon is a dedicated but jobless actor, an ambitious and serious playwright. But as the months go by and no parts are offered, his manuscripts returned, his life becomes a nightmare of anonymity, petty debt, and enforced idleness. When he goes to live with the Elliot family, the nightmare changes but does not lift. Eventually, George Dillon forges his "success". Yet, his epitaph is a judgment on all of us: "He never allowed himself one day of peace. He made no one happy. He loved no one successfully. And, in the end, it doesn't really matter."
