Letters to P. L. Travers, with some replies, from directors of amateur
and children's theater companies asking for permission to adapt "Mary
Poppins" for the stage. P. L. Travers refuses permission in each case,
explaining that "the film has its own integrity," as do the books, and
they cannot be mixed. She feels that a stage production that attempted
to incorporate material from the film and books would fail.
