This chapter examines the most successful of Peake's plays, The Wit to Woo, which had a brief run at the Arts Theatre in London in the spring of 1957, and discusses how his growing interest in writing for the theatre is evident in his fiction. It considers the problems Peake had to contend with in writing plays, and how the classic play, Volpone, or The Fox (1606) became a major source of inspiration for him.
