Anonymity as Obscurity

Mark Ravenhill responds thus to John Mullan's new book on authorial anonymity (discussed below here and here):
I'd like to think my work has an inherent quality that will be recognised whatever name is on it, and that I'd be offered productions in all the same theatres. But then what if I slide right back down the literary ladders and receive a pile of rejection letters?
Mm, quite. If his play were even read, this is what might happen.
