A Memorial of High Class— ■ Repe
London, Itaicb 24.
Kv.-n Bhafeesp . is reduced to the lowest
terms by the urn of a naval denominator! . The
general committee which has been reconciling
two projects for a national meraoriaJ hat asked
for £300,000 for building and endowing a na
tional theatre. That seems an Immense sum to
obtain by subscription in these hard times, v.hen
♦very body is Mcd by taxation for imperial de
feat* and social reform, but the optimists hob
nobbing with, the Lord Haror at the Mansion
House make little of it. "It Is only a third .->f
the cost of h Dreadnought!" they exclaim
cheerfully. They are well within the mark, for
s Dreadnought already costs ELSOO.OOO. and as
every new one is stronger, more formidable and
faster tfcan tbe last one, the- investment of na
tional capital may run op to COOO.OOO as the
Anglo-Gerinnii rivalry waxes hotter. Surely it
ought not •■> l< impossible to obtain a third or
c. quarter of the outlay for a single Dread
bought in an nndertaJdng to honor in a prac
tical way the memory of Shakespeare. That
•would be a work for coming generations and
for the world's art and literature, whereas.the
life of a battleship, according to the scientific
German standard, is on!y twenty years, after
•which it becomes obsolete and is condemned to
the old iron scrap heap.
The projectors of the national memorial have
not only devised an effective basis of compari
son, but they have also made ■ start with sub
scriptions. The Hon. Mrs. Alfred Lyttelton has
reported a gift of £70,000 from an anonymous
benefactor, and with the sobecripttanfl already
an hand there is a financial foundation of E75.-
M for the unique enterprise. One-seventh of
the rr.'T.ey required for site, building and en
dowment is covered at the outset, and the
projectors are so elated over their success that
they are na.:r.ing a date for the opening of the
theatre — 1916, the tercentenary of Shakespeare's
death. Their confidence does not appear unduly
inflated when it Is remembered that a suitable
cite is included in the estimate of cost, and that
this may be provided by the London County
Council when the bulk of the fund for the
building and the endowment is in hand. Be that
as it may. controversy over the form and scope
of the memorial has ceased. The original pro
posal for the architectural monument and statue
at the top of Portland Place was condemned by
men of letters and actors as soon as it vas
broached. The rival project of an endowed the
atre commanded such enthusiastic support that
conferences became necessary, and Lord
Plymouth's and Lord Lytton's committees were
amalgamated. All bickerings are at an end,
and there is now hearty co-operation in the
joint undertaking- of converting the "ar< hi
tectural and sculptural monument" into a na
The report of the executive committee rOLighly
allots one-half of the capital for site, building
an' stage equipment, ar.d reserves the re
mainder as an endowment fund for keeping
the national theatre in operation. This fund
•will be liberal enough to pr.-vent the sacrifice
of artistic policy for commercial ends, and to
secure a true repertory system comprehensive
In scope. Shakespeare's playg will be produced
regularly and artistically, and English classical
drama will be revived periodically. New works
of exceptional merit will be taken up when they
do not receive ili<|iibl« popular support. Trans
lations of representative foreign drama, ancient
or modern, will be staged, and unacted plays
which are unavailable for ordinary theatres will
be presented. A more elastic plan of operations
could hardly have been devised. Shakespeare
•will be honored not only by the production of
hl» own works with simplicity, beauty and
I"«ov.er. but also by direct and systematic en
couragement of his own arts — dramatic author
ship and acting. Th^re will be a repertory sys
tem which will enable ambitious playwrights to
•witness the production of their plays and to im
prove the construction and phrasing. It cannot
be doubted that this will be a great gain for
dramatic authorship and for public taste. There
•u-11l also be varied opportunities for securing
versatility in the art of acting, and this will be
highly advantageous to the profession and to
aucienoes. An Institution stimulating zeal and
ardor for better drama, more effective acting
and more cultivated taste than are now known
in the. ordinary theatres will be an ideal Shake
The management of so unlqn» a theatre will
be a most difficult enterprise. The executive
- committee 'n?te a d of leaving- It an open ques
tion has thought out a plan in detail. There
•will be a large body of governors appointed by
the Crown, universities, various municipalities
and learned bodies, and including representa
tives of self-governing colonies and America.
They will choose a standing committee of seven,
•which will be responsible for the employment
of a general -«taff. This will consist of a di
rector, a literary manager and a treasurer, who
■will conduct the theatre. Unity of management
•will be possible, since the director will engage
and dismiss artists, make business contracts,
arrange programmes and superintend produc
tions His relations with the literary manager
and the treasurer can be readily ordered, but
safeguards will be ■ requisite against meddle
some activity on the part of the standing com
mittee, which will reserve the privilege of ap
proving the selection of plays, the dismissal of
artists and the arrangement or programmes.
The director will not be allowed to be an actor
manager, to accept any fee for the practice cf
his art or to do any etage work. Nobody now
In sight in any London theatre has the Quali
ties, authority and character requisite for the
idea! director of an endowed national theatre.
He will have to be evolved and trained by cir
cumstances as has been done at the Comedle
Francaise. Mr. William. Archer and Mr. Gran
vllle.. Barker agree that there will be no diffi
culty In discovering him. and there may not be.
The actor-manager, the star performer and
tlse long run will be dispensed with in the Na
ttoaiJ Ebakeageare Theatre. There will be tr%-
Engaged for "The Beauty Spot," "the
next offering at the Herald Square
Quent changes of programme, revivals of old
plaj*3 and trials of new pieces; and there will be
performances in the provincial towns as well as
in London. These are attractive lines of action,
v.hich offer promise of intellectual drama and
superior craftsmanship. As the committee out
lines the work of the repertory theatre, there
will be fit least three different plays every week,
of which one will be by Shakespeare, <-r an
English classical play. Musical comedy is ruled
out, for while music and pantomime may be
freely .:s<hl. .the dramatic motive must predom
mate. Membership in the repertory company
will be dignified by honorary decoration and
assurance of pension, and in addition to fixed
salaries for definite services tfiere may be
bonuses out of the reserved surplus profits for
distrib - among th< actors. The" committee
has explored the whole subject with thorough
ness and devised a general scheme, to which
no exception is taken by members of the pro
fession. Ttie National Shakespeare Theatre
appeals to lovers of drama and acting who care
more about pis ys than about stars, and want to
have the existing stage, with its sr:ii<- manner
isms and conventions^ thoroughly reformed and
freshened with ideas. Another open air monu
ment to le fouled with London grime would
not have interested them, and Stratford has
evidently the only site for anything lik' a
Shakespeare hous< or museum. A repertory
theatre in the Interest of national art follows
the right lines and deserves a full measure of
public generosity and support. I. N. F.

This l«»gal finding was evidently not precisely to
the liking of the Irishman, for no sooner had he
left th* "tand and had turned his back than he
gave way to a somewhat ieristvs lau^h. This had
the effect of arousln.tr In turn the Judge's ire. and
