IRISH PLAYERS BROADEN SCOPE BEYOND NATIVE DRAMA
• - ___A - -—-— ^ Revolutionary Step Taken By Famous Abbey Theater Shakespeare, Shaw and Continental Dra matists Find Way Into Repertory, Aideen O’Connor Reports—Next Visit Unsettled. By Robert B. Phillips, Jr. IN THE Fall of last year reports from Ireland advised us that the Abbey Theater was in a tempest. Production of Sean O'Casey's irreverent "The : Silver Tassle" had reconciled the greatest of modern Irish dramatists with . his State theater, but raised the roof with partisan and clerical blasts of j criticism. The ensuing storm split wide open a newly organized board of directors, and left the Irish player's friends wondering what might be the j uesuny ui lneii lainous group. •; The answer comes today in a let ter from Dublin, penned by that most charming of correspondents, Aideen O’Connor. The youngest, newest and one of the most popular of the Ab bey’s first string company. Miss O'Con nor borrowed time from repetory to advise us that the State Theater has changed its face. Once devoted solely to the production of 'native dramas and the encouragement of Irish au thors, the company has undergone a revolution. Shakespeare, Shaw, an occasional continental playwright, now find interpretation in the sweet tongue of Erin. When next the Ab beyites return to Washington (where they are rated as one of the steadiest and strongest boxoffice draws of the decade) we may see Barry Fitzgerald stuffed with pillows and roaring through Falstaff, or Arthur Shields gloomily eloquent as Hamlet. The fair and intricate mantle of Candida may rest upon Miss O'Connor’s shoulders, or be intrusted to one of her compatriots while our favorite in formant impersonates a sly continental heroine. \VfE ARE not advised whether this ■ ’ departure from tradition was a direct consequence of the ‘ Silver Tas sie” squabble. It is possible the Abbey board resolved to free itself from the obligation to produce controversial Irish plays. The easiest way to do that would be to fill the seasonal schedule with a variety of English. French and other scripts. Then a drama which promised to ruffle tem pers and embarrass the state spon sors could be shifted forward into an other Winter, by which time it might either have lost its sting or the author have been prevailed upon to recon sider some of his more explosive state ments. * Again it may be that the board of strategy merely decided Ireland was not turning out enough material to deserve the undivided attention of one of the greatest acting organizations in the world. The directors may have felt the need for new fields to play in, new peaks to ascend. Whatever the motive, the Abbey has reformed its policies. Hugh Hunt, an Englishman, has been imported to specialize in the new brand of pro ductions: Lennox Robinson handles the fresh Irish product and occasion ally tries his hand in the continental line (Mr. Hunt the while experiment ing with Irish lore', and Michael Dolan stages revivals. Under this regime. Miss O’Connor reveals that the Abbey has conducted itself thusly dur ing the latter days of 1935: First prodifction, "Village Wooing” and “Candida” (G. B. S.), directed by Hugh Hunt. ‘‘Cat and the Moon” (Yeats! and “Courtesy of Mary Doyle” (McNulty), revivals, staged by Michael Dolan. "Parnell of Avondale” (Fearon), Mr. Hunt. "Drama at Inish,” performed by the Coming Attractions. JJETTE DAVIS, cast as an actress who is one of the country’s fallen Idols, rescued from the depths by a young architect. Franchot Tone, is starred in "Dangerous.” new Warner Bros, film, which opens next Fri day at the Earle Theater. Margaret Lindsay. Alison Skipworth, John El dredge and Dick Foran are others in the cast. Cross and Dunn will head line the vaudeville portion of the entertainment and the other stage acts will be the Twelve Aristocrats, with Nyra Nash: Hal Christy and Co., and the Unique Walkmirs. What goes on behind the scenes at a radio station during the broad cast of a weekly amateur hour is depicted in "Millions in the Air,” Paramount picture, which will be the next screen attraction at Warner’s Metropolitan Theater, opening Fri day. Most of the action takes place in a radio studio, which is a dupli cate of Radio City’s largest broad casting theater, and the cast in cludes Wendy Barrie, George Bar bier, Eleanor Whitney, Willie Howard end others. Frank Buck's newest picture, “Fang and Claw,” bringing to the screen his hair-raising experiences in collect ing wild animals for zoological parks throughout the world, will be the next bill of entertainment at R-K-O Keith's Theater. The film will be shown as soon as the current .“Mag nificent Obsession" completes its run. Victor McLaglen, whose great act ing in “The Informer" has earned him the accolade of the Nation’s critics, is starred in Damon Runyon's “Professional Soldier,” which opens ” at Loew’s Pox Theater next Friday. Freddie Batholomew shares top hon ors with McLaglen, and Tay Garnett . directed the film. Kazanova and her Tziganes, direct from New York’s French Casino, will headline the stage show-, and Charles Carlisle will be the added attraction. “The Bride Comes Home,” story of ft girl who battled her way to the ftltar, will be shown at Loew’s Palace ►”- 1 11 No. 2 company, directed by Lennox Robinson. Meanwhile the top per formers went to Cork and played: “Autumn Fire” (T. C. Murray), re vival, Mr. Dolan. "Drama at Inish” (Robinson), re vival, Mr. Dolan. “Juno and the Paycock” (O'Casey), revival, Mr. Dolan. “Noah” (Obey), directed by Mr. Hunt. 'T'HENCE the thespians went to Bel fast, where they presented “Drama at Inish,” “Juno” and “The Plough and the Stars," all produced under Dolan's guidance. On returning to Dublin, “Noah" was staged again, with Mr. Dolan in the title role and Arthur Shields playing “Ham." The Dolan performance was rated by many critics as far superior to John Gielgrid's limning of the same part in the Lon don production. Later, in thgir home town, the players put on "Saint in a Hurry, ’ a new script: "Summer's Day,” another one receiving its introduction to the country; thereafter came “The Shadow of a Gunman,” a revival, while Lennox Robinson's “The Critic” held tne spotlight during Christmas week. About a weex age the first Shakespearean presentation appeared. It was "Coriolanus,” a drama more or less unfamiliar to the bard’s public, but avidly favored by college dramatic societies and others who are trying their vings on Avon poesy. These transmutations in the Abbey seem a trifle remote at present, yet eventually they will mean quite as much to many Washingtonians as if our own National Players suddenly decided lo produce the works of Clif ford Odets, Representative Sirovich and Morrie Ryskind all in the same season. Just when this city will first view the new players repetoire it is impossible to say. A New York journal reported last Summer that they would visit agam this year, w'hich obviously they will not. MISS O’CONNOR sounds a vaguely discouraging note when she re marks: "We are all dying to be back , in America again—but heaven knows if we ever shall, now that things are ; so different.’’ Offhand, we would guess that they surely will, ior the very good reason that America will demand their return :n one of the loudest artistic "lamours ever raised this side of Soho. Meanwhile, if even a season without the Abbey distresses you, it is passible to catch a glimpse of an Abbeyite here and there in America. Maureen De laney played a featured role in “His Family Tiee" with James Barton, and is now’ bound for the R-K-O studios again ro appear in pictures. Denis O'Dea had a part in the best of 1935’s cinemas, “The Informer,” and he, too, is in the States, cast in a New York stage play (the name of which we do not know). Until the whole company returns, the most rabid of us fans may be able to subsist on a diet of two members. We trust we will not be starved too long. when the current attraction. "A Tale of Two Cities” ends its run. Clau dette Colbert and Fred MacMurray. who scored as the battling romanticsts in “The Gilded Lily.” again are teamed and Robert Young makes up the threesome. “In Old Kentucky" will remain at Loews Columbia through Tuesday night and will be succeeded Wed nesday by “Ah, Wilderness,” Metro Goldwyn-Mayer’s j)icturization of Eu gene O'Neill’s great American comedy drama. Wallace Beery, Lionel Barry more, Eric Linden, Aline McMahon. Spring Byington and others are in the cast. “The Informer," nominated by New York and local movie critics as the best film of 1935, will again return to the Little Theater this week. It opens today and will be shown through Wednesday. “Tillie and Gus,” costarring W. C. Fields and Alison Skipworth, will open Thursday and will play through Saturday.

Like Chaplin further, ehe achieves her results through comedy— through warm, all-embracing carica ture which never wounds nor insults but brings to audiences the joys of recognition. The program to be presented by the Trudi Schoop Comic Ballet comprises two major dance comedies. One, en- 1 titled “At the Advertising Window," I enacts the drama behind all the class ified ads which swarm' into news papers. In this the pathetic com edies and small tragedies of the hu-! man race are illustrated.

Helen Hayes Is Named Theater’s First Actress Honor Is Bestowed on Her by Noted Broad way Critic Who Likes Her Perform ance in “Victoria Regina.” By Percy Hammond. NEW YORK. January 12. ONCE upon a time I asked the late Henry Miller what persuaded him to produce "The Servant in the House,” an allegory-drama which, in the language of its day, became all the rage with theater-goers a generation ago. I had read the manuscript and had found it piously interesting, but I had discovered in it none of the mixed elements that would cause me to stand up and say to all the world, "This is a play l” Piqued by the success of a work for which I had predicted failure, I im portuned Mr. Miller (who was then tolerant with drama critics) to ex plain why he was able to see money and kudos in it, while I was not. Bending a little, for he was a proud man of the theater, he whispered, “Clairvoyance is the most essential thing in play production, and I have a touch of it.”, T AM recalled to this conversation with Henry Miller by the triumph of Gilbert Miller’s presentation of “Victoria Regina,” in which Miss Helen Hayes is now appearing profit ably to one and all at the Broadhurst. To perceive, in Mr. Laurence Hous man’s quiet chain of library playlets about Victoria, the possibilities of a Broadway hit, required. I think, more than normal perception. It requires the intuitive and hereditary sagacity of a clairvoyant to peer beyond the range of an ordinary impresario’s eye sight. and uncover values hidden to all except the gifted few. For, as Mr. Housman wrote it, “Victoria Regina” is a sequence of loosely connected, slow-paced dialogues, written to be read, not acted. Like Victoria's intel lect, as described by the author, it is sedentary, almost moribund, contain ing none of the usual ingredients that inflame the playgoing emotions. Yet it is now in its stage-form, the sim plest, most comfortable and one of the most prosperous dramatic items on the varied and satiating-menu of Longacre Square. And vying with it is another example of a showman’s subconscious cerebration—that af forded by Mr. Max Gordon in his sol vent production of “Pride and Preju dice.” That enterprise. I daresay, would have been undertaken by no entrepreneur unless he knew that he was endowed with the magic of a pene trative second sight. W«0. f now, do you suppose, is our first actress. Miss Cornell, Miss Fontanne or Miss Hayes? Miss Cor nell elects to bfe of the regal type, friendly though aloof, disbursing her rich favors from coast to coast like a great lady of the theater. Lofty and distant, familiar and benevolent, she has established herself as the most majestic institution of the American stage, a shrine in whicn any intelli gent drama-worshipper may light his candles. Miss Fontanne, as you have seen her as the Shrew in the Guild's Shakespearean harlequinade, is both attist and showwoman. depending. I suspect, upon the moment to give her audience pleasure, rather than upon | history to give her fame Miss Hayes, a Democrat, distributing her esthetic wares via the radio, the cinema and the drama, is the most far-reaching and influential of the three, and so. I believe, she is entitled to be known, for the present, at least, as our first actress. * * * * A S ONE who has been ringing the ■r* hallelujah bells for Miss Hayes' acting ever since he was old enough to clap a gong. I mav be excused for sounding a dissonant note or two in j the general carillon. It has been said l that I once described Miss Hayes as afflicted with ‘ fallen archness." a de | scription that I must have borrowed from Heywood Broun or Mr. Nathan. Still it seems to be appropriate to her performance in some of the scenes of i "Victoria Regina." For instance that I one in which, after the wedding night, y Victoria watches the Prince Consort as he shaves himself—an authentic in cident, according to Mr. Housman. The eternal ingenue which is the most dangerously fascinating of Miss Hayes' predilections here f-'.reatens to betray her. She becomes that charming thing—“a nimble kitten with a ball of yarn.” For all you or I know Victoria was cute and cunning on her honey moon, but Mr. Housman and tradi tion suggests that she was neither. Miss Hayes makes her both, indicating , perhaps that she, too, is clairvoyant. 4 « * 4t VJR. HOUSMAN was canny In his dramatization of this compar atively trivial incident. It has in it all he needed to show the tight-willed little queen—whose repressions and sanctities were to give a name to an age—made suddenly thrall to the simple masculinity of a handsome and noble man. A thralldom that was to last her life and color he> every subse quent action, political as well as do mestic. Miss Hayes in the scene, turns on all the faucets of her super ingenuous lure. She appears in the dressing room of her young husband, not as a startled and happy bride, but as a little girl out of a nursery, escaped for the moment from her governess. And I would not have her otherwise. Back to Stage. QSGOOD PERKINS, currently being seen on the screen with Lily Pons in her first film.
