attractions of the coming season. As
a play the work of Mr. Bryton stands
pre-eminently ait t.he head of its class
in comedv-drama, and there is no
doubt that it will please every class
of amusement seeker.
"Mr. Lawrence has a great part in

received so much praise from both the
press and the public generally. The

there is no question that every char
acter will be exquisitely handled, Mr.
