The playwright eventually allowed Moody to paint this study for the Malvern Festival group portrait in 1938 but on his arrival Shaw told him, ‘I’m afraid I shall not be able to sit – Mussolini has let me down. I had counted on him not persecuting the Jews. This morning’s paper tells me he has done so and I must re-write the last act of Geneva in time for the cast to learn it for tonight’s performance.’
