William Somerset Maugham

Theatre

Julia Lambert is in her prime, the greatest actress in England. Off stage, however, she is bored with her handsome husband, coquettish and undisciplined. She is at first flattered and amused by the attentions of a shy and eager young fan, but before long Julia is amazed to find herself falling wildly, dangerously, in love.

💞Loved Up

I adore women who act like Julia. They love themselves, they don’t care about others. People can’t stand against them because they have a power and strong character, yes, they can be bitchy, but I would say being bitch and respected is better then being a poor lamb.

Quotes

And he felt that he could more profitably spend his evenings, when Julia was acting, by going to outlying theatres and trying to find talent. He kept a little book in which he made a note of every actor who seemed to show promise. Then he had taken to directing. It had always grizzled him that directors should ask so much money for rehearsing a play, and of late some of them had even insisted on a percentage on the gross. At last an occasion came when the two directors Julia liked best were engaged and the only other one she trusted was acting and thus could not give them all his time.

Men were creatures of habit; that gave women such a hold on them
