Barter brings “John Loves Mary” to Wilmington by special permission of producters Rich ard Rodgers and Oscar Ham merstein, whose interest in this unusual company prompted them to attend exclusive rights for its production here. The play, Norman Krasna’s successful follow-up of his de lightful “Dear Ruth,” has a spe cial significance for the Bater Theatre since Willia mPrince, a former Barter actor, is starred in the Broadway production now entering its second year at the Music Box Theatre in New York. A gay arid modern farce, “John Loves Mary’’ deals with the problem of the returned sol diers who finds his love' life com plicated by time and distance.
