A review, by Robert Mansicld.
Amid a loud jabber of (on.,crUstion
on the part of the audience, Ahimes of
the Michigan Union made a most
noble attempt to start their opening
production of the year last nigl
Their greatest inistake undounotdly
lay in the fact that they not only
tried but succeeded in starting the
performance on tine -.n act whic
so injured the tendier feelings of the }
audience that there came the only-to-
be-expected outburst of indignalion.
And so the first few lines were lost.
But Mimes is notei for its reco v-
eries. In a most a brupt and unseem-
ly manner, the (mains were drawn.
Finally the audience set tled down. To
the surprise and delight of those who
came to witness a play, the perfor-;
mance was begun again, and from the
begiiing. This time some of the
lines were audible, reuenered indis-
tinct here and there by too much
practiced broad Gaelic accent.
