Usually "Playboy of the Western
World" is played in one of two
ways: either the mearding of the
Irish dialogue is stressed or the
dialogue is treated as sensation-
stimuli and the sound of the
words, together with the actor's
gestures, are moulded in such a
way as to imply the play's mean-
Robert McGill, the director of
the performance of "Playboy"
which the Department of Speech
is presenting through this week at
the Lydia Mendellsohn Theatre,
chooses to interpret Synge's work
somewhere between these two ex-
This seems more than sensible.
The meaning of the dialogue is al-
most inaccessible to an American
audience, and yet to ignore it
completely is to deny a very im-
portant element of the play.
Further (practical consider-
atons aside), it seems to me that
words themselves do not create
meaning of themselves. Emotion
(for the audience) does not come
solely from a series of intellectual
gymnastics with words. Nor, on
the other hand, can we subscribe
to a purely sensationalist view of
things. Emotion just doesn't come
out of the blue.
Thus McGill's conception which
sets the words as "sense-data" and
incorporates the words' built-in
meaning alongside the gestures,
and within the rhythm of the
whole play gives 'the play more
guts than would total reliance on
the meaning-giving interpretation
or on the tonepoem interpreta-
To be sure, the idea of meaning-
giving-and-taking is much more
difficult to "deal with. And it is
when this approach fails, as it
does in the second act, during the
dialogue~ between Shawn Keogh
(John Morren) and Widow Quin
(Roberta . . . Fritz), that the play
goes flat. Widow Quin throughout
the play is more intent oninfor-
mation-giving, unfortunately de-

stroying both the humor and the
rambunctiousness of her part.
More tragic, John Morarn has
nothing to play against.
This contrasts markedly with
the scenes between Shawn and
Pegeen Mike (Holly Villairs).
Here, Miss Villaire combines the
lyric (which we love to associate
with the good old Irish peasantry)
with the document; the wit, with
the serious. Language is no bar-
rier. We feel -the meaning and the
odd word here or there is suf-
ficient to give us the information-
facts. In these scenes Moran's in-
terpretation becomes very rich,
since against Holly Villaire, he can
establish and sustain the rhythm
McGill demanded.
We have here one of the most
revealing things about McGill's
direction. it calls for a tone or
movement for the play mote in-
tense than anything I have seen
(ever) in Ann Arbor. A foot out
of line by any of the actors and
the play will drag and its sharp
wit miss.
Hopefully, we can expect Ro-
berta . . . Fritz to feel her part as
the run continues. Then, McGill's
sophisticated interpretation should
be achieved, since the smaller
parts are all played more than
adequately. David Villaire's Philly
Cullen, Peter Ferran's Old Mahon,
William Moore's Jimmy Farrell
are all superbly played and con.
Finally one reservation which
mars this fine production, is the
Irish harp music, played every
time there is the merest whisper
of love between Pegeen and Shawn
(reminiscent of Dr. Kildare). Mel-
odrama has no place in Synge.
But otherwise ...

ATHENS, Greece 0>1) - Greece's
military government said yester-
day it will put anti-monarchist!
leader Andreas Papandreou on
trial and then try to deport hin
to the United States.
Papandreou, 47, son of ex-Pre-
mier George Papandreou. served
in the U.S. Navy and became a
U.S. citizen after World War II
He taught economics at the Uni-
versity of California at Berkeley
and elsewhere before returning to
Greece to enter politics several
years ago.
Rids Junta of Problem
Deporting Papandreou would rid
the junta of one of its most tick-
lish political dilemmas. Papan-
dreou was among politicians put
in military custody after the
April 21 coup and observers ex-
pressed concern for his safety.
Sources said the U.S. govern-
ment brought pressure on the
regime against a possible execu-
tion of Papandreou. The military
insisted it had no idea of execut-
ing anyone.
Brig. Stylianos Patacos, the in-
terior minister, announcing that
Papandreou would be tried, did
not specify the charges against
His name has figured in the
Aspida-Shield-case, in which a
secret Greek army clique was said
to have been planning to remove
King Constantine and turn Greece
into a Socialist state.
Leader of Aspida
Military investigators concluded
that Papandreou "more or less"
led Aspida but his immunity as a
member of Parliament prior to the
coup prevented legal procedures
against him.
Fifteen army officers charged

with treason were convicted last
March of involvement in Aspida
and received prison sentences of
two to 18 years.
A diplomatic source said Pap-
andreou did not renounce his U.S.
citizenship but that it was auto-
matically removed when he was
