ing in the existing order of things is
right and everything ia wrong, is once
more regaling us, this time with his
amusing fantasy at the expense 01
highly respected antiquity.
I wish I might give more than a
bare inkling of the flavor of this clev
er travesty of historj. "Caesar and
Cleopatra," in which Mr. Forbes
Robertson and Miss Gertrude Elliott
with their London company are now
convulsing New York. Its elusive
but genuine humor resists description
and I can only advise all on the look
out for unique cnteitainmcnt to go
to see it if it comes their way. 3-
The play has been in print for sev
eral years in the volume, "-Plays For
Puritans " though it is not necessary
to be a Puritan to enjoy .it. And even
if it irritates you with its impudent
trifling with venerable facts you can
not fail to be delight d with -Mr.

Nile is, in itself, a masterpiece of

The acquaintance thus romantically
begun in the desert ripened to genu

watchful eye of Featatceta, Cleo
patra's dragon nurse. So experienced
a leader of men. and citizen of the
world soon learned that the Egypt
ians were afflicted with many of the
.evils that worry the Britons of today.
From this point the play if, in
deed, it can be called a play wanders
through a scries of unexpected veins.
Sometimes its mood is farce; again
it seems to be romantic comedy, and
once, at least, it rises to the plane of
real drama.. But whatever be its
shifting spirit it contrives always to
be unique and entertaining.
Caesar's interesting sojourn in
Egypt covers a period of five months,
during which his legions teach the
armies of the Nile a thing or two.
Then he sets out for Rome, promis
ing, at Cleopatra's hint of a longing 3
for a younger and handsomer man,

Mr. Forbes-Robertson, notwith
standing that he is the most serious
actor in England, plays Caesar with
deliriously sustained farcical gravity.
His resemblance to the Roman Con
queror is so close that it is almost
uncanny. His acting and elocution
arc ideal. Miss Elliott is quite as
interesting in her impersonation ot
who, under Caesar's tutelage, grad
