ENDING TNURSDAY
"MAJESTY ON FILM!
IT IS WONDERFUL !''

You can tell:Players
do more with Shaw
By MARCIA ABRAMSON
Fortunately for everyone, the University Players have made an
excellent choice in "You Never Can Tell."
In the first place, Shaw's play can withstand the deficiencies in
acting which often mar the Players' attempts. And, to give this cast
the credit they deserve, the majority turn in fine performances.
"You Never Can Tell" also holds up against the assaults of time.
Human nature, seen with so telling a vision as Shaw's, does not change
that much. The theme of women's liberation, in fact, has come full
circle into a new topicality.
Time has taken some of the edge off Shaw's satire, but in return has
substituted a different aura, the soft patina of a charming resurrection
of a slower and somehow- more civilized age, evoked by the lovely and
authentic costuming and settings as well as the dialogue.
"You Never Can Tell" is the story of the accidental re-uniting of
a family separated because the husband did not agree with his wife's
liberated ideas on such issues as women's liberation and "spare the
rod, spoil the child."
Mrs. Clandon has been training her oldest daughter to follow in her
footsteps, scorning "love" and fighting for great causes. But Shaw
punctures her pretensions, as he does to almost all these characters,
by having Gloria fall at once to Valentine, a smooth-talking "new man."
Valentine gets his, as his Don Juan act evaporates and he discovers
that Gloria has taken command. Valentine chafes and pleads, but in
the end he is caught, in a courtship scene very much like the downfall
of Jack Tanner in Man and Superman. Valentine and Gloria, however,
are much more shallow characters, and there is less of the epic in
their battle of the sexes.
Modern tuan and modern woman end up married, as always, and
mother discovers her causes from twenty years before are old hat now.
There are new crusades; there will always be new crusades.
Although the romantic interest belongs to Valentine and Gloria,
and the satirical interest to Mrs. Clandon and her mate, the delinquent
minor children of the mismatched parents steal the show.
Dolly (Priscilla Lindsay)> and Phillip (Thomas Sweeney are irre-
pressible, incorrigible, and whatever else you can think of. In their
free-wheeling, unconventional ways, it is they who are the moderns
whether Shaw knew it or not, I don't know.)
Dolly took all my attention whenever she was on stage with her
bright eyes and voice. Dolly is. always cutting up, but she also is always
cutting through the shrouds of pretension and convention that over-
hang her world.
The major problem with the production is in the acting of Valen-
tine, Mr. Crampton and William the Waiter. Chester Smith as Mr.
Crampton overacted a bit, and Evan Jeffries as William was also
guilty of piling it on.
Bruce Levitt's Valentine seemed artificial; he seemed to be trying
very hard but not quite getting the right expression or tone of voice.
But, as I said, that doesn't have to matter so much in this play.
Shaw's wit could carry itself, and the Players do much more than that.
