Don John Grimmer

Don John Grimmer

Don John is a stagey villain, a bit of Machiavelli stalking about the comic stage. Should he be convincingly grim? I am inclined to think so, otherwise the tension of the play is slackened. John Treadwell did his best, but his voice and presence were too light. Probably he was miscast. Has the Drama Club no thin wiry devils, or, alternatively, no Bold Bad Men?
