BIG DRAMATIC FESTIVAL ON
WORLD'S TOUR COMING TO
Guy Bates Post and his excelle -t
company included this season ar
pearing in "The Masquerader" one
of the few really worth while plays
of the decade. The unusual com
pany-the one that will make a
world's tour by the way-with its
wealth of scenery, electrical effects
and novel revolving stages.
This well-known representative acc
tor has never had a better vehic!e
than this. His manager Mr. Richahl
Walton T',lly has gone to absolute
extremes in providing a productio~n
both ponderous and unique. Two
crews of mechanics are carried by
the ccmpany to insure proper stage
effects. The management of the Wal
nut Street Theatre is giving specilt
attention to out-of-town patrons in
order that automobile and excursio i
parties may have seats reserved witl
as much care as though the purchaser
were at the ticket office winddw.
Mr. Post has played "The Masquer
ader" in Australia and Europe where
he scored the greatest hit ever made
by an American actor.
The story is of two men, John
Chilcote and John Londer. The
first is a man born to wealth, society
and political leadership. Unfortunate
ly drugs have secured a hold on him
and when the craving comes he is
restive under the need for caring fcr
his many important interests.
While Chilcote is in one of these
resentful moods he encounters Job
Loder. Loder is, in every respect hi
double, except that he has a notice- -
able scar on his fingers. Loder is a
man well read, well traveled and am
bitious to take a place among the
leaders of his race.
Chilcote, in the frenzy of morphia'
seeks out Loder and proposes that
they exchange places. Loder refuses
Chilcote collapses and his man Brock
pleads with Loder to represent hin
as the speaker on an important issue
in parliament that night. Lured by
the opportunity Loder consents and
carried away by the cause for which
he pleads scores a National sensa
