Versatile New Cast

Versatile New Cast.

The production was in all respects capable and workmanlike. The cast, which was of entirely new material, displayed unusual versatility and was, without exception, well cast. The heaviest part—that of George Radfern, the father—was played with confidence and evenness by E. S. Harrowell. The heavy part at no time lagged and was most convincingly portrayed. The easy-going mother was played by Molly Best, who gave one of the most sympathetic and clear characterisations in the play. Uncle Bernard, the bombastic man from "out East," was played by Ashley-Jones. This fresher proved himself to be a most promising actor in his first appearance. His deep voice helped to emphasise the shallow character and was very pleasant to listen to.
