Woods presented Inat nlifht at the KltlnKC Theutre. hits vrr been leen on the stiiKo In New York. The lUtement Is made un(uallHealy. There fcave been, It Is true. croo,k plays and crook pl.ijp. lint "Cheating Cheuters" l. a otook play par cxeeleneo, which for originality of theme and treatment ecu a widely departed standard from every play pf a lll.e nature which lias yet teen produced here. Mott of there playa of the patt have had at lean olio, crook In them to make things excltlnc Sometimes they have had two, sometimes even three ; hut here Is a play In which cery character In the piece except one Is a crook and thli last one turns out to be a detective after tlrt inasnueradlnit as a ctvok. In fact "Cheatlnn Cheaters" Is criminality ral.-el to the nth power, and It reeks with characters which the novels would call "society burglars." It revels In ahootlncs. holdups, con games, mlsunder- Handings, policemen and Jewels. (There always must l Jewels In a well behaved crook play.) Hrl!ly told, the plot concerns a Rang of thieves masquerading as the Brock ton family, who arrange to rub a wealthy family, tho Valmtrn, of their collection of aluablo Jewels. Ituth Brockton, the clever leader of the crooks. Is loved by Tom Palmer, who In the underworld vernacular "falls for the frauieup" and Invites Ruth to live with his family while the rocArfotis are aay. Many- Surprises In Play. Then comes the first of many sur prise, In which "Cheating Cheaters" Is replete, when tho i'alnicrs aro shown to t .mother band of crook who have planned to rob the Wrorkfon. After that come a series of misunderstandings lietween the two rival bands, each try ing tb rob the other. In which there Is a plentiful display of firearms and many fanciful robberies, until the two gangs finally decide to consolidate. The tven crooks are holding a "directors treating" when Detective Ilalmei makes a raid and captures them all. The nr.it three acts huvlng alternately ho-.vn the homes of the JJrocJcrona and t'-e I'nlmers, the fourth act discloses With f.imllle under nrrest In the ottlce cf tlie "National Detective Agency" the following morning. Uuth lirorktnn has apparently "double crossed" them all It dei clops that she Is "Ferris," the "in- T1MW0 enemy" of crooks, Mie saves them all from twenty years iu the twnl Itntiary by making them sign full con fessions of their crimes and gives them tit Jobs as detectives. But because of Tom 'nlmer'j heroism nn board a tor re.li.ed vessel, where she flrat met the Ji'urc man, she accepts him as a hus band. "t'heatlnir Cheaters" In the acting Is as flood as It is unique. One surprise fol f iWH another and the audience Is kept entirely in the dark until the last act cnm-trnliig the Identity of "Ferris," the "invisible" one. Then, too, the play pokes fun at Itself as It goes along, and th- method of having each act end with the Kline line: "WV, boys, I guess It's D'eii a pretty good clay s work for us Is sonx'tblng that has seldom been car ried out In any play of a similar nature, (hkmI Work by Cant. Mr Woods had selected a cast which tae th" piece Just the light touch neces tsr) to keep It from being taken too aerioiHy, Cyril Kelghtlcy, theatric to lie extieine as h always Is, carried off the honors along with Marjorie Hani beau with ease and grace In a part huh did not give him full opportunity for the display cf hur.an emotions, w 111 lain Mum looked anfl acted exactly as a retitleiimn crook might be supposed to. and Itohert MrW'ade was excellent as a reeul.ir crook and provoked much merrl 'nt with his query about how many m in murder.
