Th. third play by the Macphersons.
as Mr. and Mrs. Jean du Rocher call
themselves, to be seen In this city wa
presented at the Shubert Theatre last
night by Arthur Hopkins. Although
none of the plays of these two authors
hitherto seen here was altogether satis
factory, there was promise In both, of
them. "Evidence" had qualities which
under different circumstances might
have carried it to somo success. In "A
King of Nowhere" Ix)U Tellcgen found
the best medium of display for his
exotic talents In English. So there was
genuine curiosity to see the new play
Then there was the recommendation
that it haj been selected by Arthur
Hopkins. Mr. Hopkins Is one of the
younger generation of theatre managers
who has shown himself mutt subject to
the newer and artistic Influences in the
theatre. He was Indeed called not many
months ago "the white hope." For de
tecting the charm of Elinor Gates's "The
Seven," as well as realizing the force
nnd originality of Elmer Heliensteln's
melodrama "On Trial," he had teemed it
to managers of an
Element In Performance.
The record last night showed that the
new play was In three acts which were
cornposcd of ret'en scenes. There were
In the first net three scenes, whlc'i
showed the forest In the twilight and nt I
night and then "The Hereafter." The
second act began with a picture of the j
way to the Island of Sleep, then fhowed i
the Island with "Hi Space" ami "Here
and There" as the unusual designations
of Its two final tableaux. The last act
passes In a palace. The announcement
that Hobert E. Jones had designed the
scenery assured highly artistic treat
ment of the visual phases of the piece.
Eugen Halle, a well known composer ot
this tlty, had prepared a symphonic nc-
, companlment to the scenes.
These deUlla of "The Happy Ending'
. were treated In d manner most -atlsfa
lory to the audience. It was to the ma
terial provided by the Macphersons that
it turned expectantly only to meet with
the bitterest disappointment nt every
stage of the phnntasy which the two had
devised. The first scenes turned out to
be undiluted Imitation of Maeterlinck.
It neemed at this point curious to think
that nn American manager who probably
would not have risked a cent tn the pro
duction of any of the Belgian poet's
plays would have been willing to under
take so much as Mr. llcyiklns hail done
for a mixture of Maeterlinck and water
very Ensrllsti water, moreover. Hut
the mood of the play changed from the
opening scenes from the earlier mtl
clsm of the poet's work, which Is per
haps best known here, "The Blue Bird."
But for certain ircene In this play, "The
Happy Ending" would have been impos
sible. Happiness After Death.
The scenes In 'The Hereafter" and
all those that occupied the Interminable
second act were an Illustration of the
happiness that comes nfter dinth nnd
were no more nn amplification of the
warrea Bl )
Bead fee Catalog
scenes In "The niue Hlrd," In which tho
two errant youngsters visit their grand
parents and find them dolnir Just what
they had been linppy In during their life
time, The Macphersons had been In their
cooperation nt least original enough to
bring the subject of tho ttelglnn play
down to the day. Ho, among tho happy
souls lhat wandered Into this middle
world of penes there were French anil
German victims nf Verdun, nctors who
nt last had good parts lo play, attorneys
free from tho routine of their office and
grandparents who could watch their
descendants and disapprove of the pres
ent method of rearing them. There were
children nlwayi present to nccetituiilc
against Mr. Jones'H backgrounds the
happiness In that unorthodox und mid
dle world that first received those who
depart from this vale of tears.
Hobert Jones had provided some strik
ing and artistic backgrounds for the first
scenes. In which the characters wandered
around In the correct mood of Macter
llncklan abstraction In the manner of
.IMIsande and tho I'rinru Mulrtne.
When the spirit of the piece became, mor
transcendental the painter had banks of
daisies and asphodel on which the bodies
of the weary could Incline. He even at-
tempted with some success tho depletion
of space, with the western hemisphere 1
outlined against a background of myriads .
of stars. Kuitenc Halle's scorn was mu-i
slcnl, melodious and In a high degree
Illustrative of the mood of every scene.
It ttas the work of a true musician.
Hut the manner In which the Mncpher
son material wan presented to the (tub
lie did not avnll, Tho scenes varied from
such Incomprehensible nonsense nn the
epl.oln described as "In Space," which
nns a farrago of the most hopeless
Idio.-y, In which n boy with a wireless
telephone called on the stars and read
their answers, down to tho watery senti
mentality of the scenes In "Tho Here
after." There was u queen who did the
honors In this celestial realm quite after
the manner of. the fnlry queen in n spec
It wns really Impossible to tell what It
was nil about. A curly haired young
man In tnnen ahnr s.it lit omh rnrlier uf
I the stage and played on a mythlcjl In
strument which wnn supposed to blow
i sin nut of the world. At tho other side
I of the stage there was an old man seem
ingly Intent on the same task. A lad In
the half heaven of the second uct re
fused to speak to his father because he
, had put up a tombstone lo him. I'ert
