Sanford Dodge has 'The Right of Wny.'
In casting about for u successful play
for next season, Mr. Sanford Dodge de
cided to produce "The Right of Way."
With this end in view ho secured from
Charles Frohman'srgents, the American
and Canadian rights for this wondorful
drama. He will use Eugene Presbrey's
version which is conceded to bo a nioH
finished dramatization of Sir Gilbeit
Parker's popular atory, which, by tho
way, is founded on absolute facts.
Tho story is not in any way a discus
sion of religion, still it propounds some
questions that are difficult to answer nnd
in fact can only be nnswered by tho in
dividual opinion and dictates of tho in
dividual brain snd conscience. The play
is constructed and exocuted with artis
tic care and detail and is intensely ilitet
esting with thrilling climaxea and terse
.tolling dinloguo. As Chin ley .Steele, the
brainy lawyer, Mr. Sanford Dodge will
provo a levclation to those who have
known him in the "Sack and Buskin"
of the legitimate dramn.
Those who have read the thrilling
novel, "The Right of Wny" will want
to see it produced and thoie who have
not will be juSt as intensely interested
as tne play is a vtiile, living, throbbing
chapter of heart beats frni exper
