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.
