ABBEY THEATRE PLAYERS ORGANIZE
ORIGINALLY AS AMATEUR COMPANY
GAUT 4 ?l'Of fERED ATHILETI"SSI
Dudley, Diggs, Leading Actor,
Once Used Leisure Time
"The Irish Players of The Abbey
Theatre, Dublin, came into being
largely as an amateur company
many years ago," stated Prof.
James M. O'Neill of the speech de-
partment in a recent interview. An
interesting story of them, which is
typical of the experience which
have produced the company, con-
cerns their first booking in London.
"When. they left Dublin to play
two nights in London shortly after
they came into existance, most of
the players were employed in stores
or offices in Dublin. The employer
of Dudley Diggs, thought it foolish
ior the young man to be wasting
its time in the theatre and refused
o give him permission to leave his
vork for the time necessary to go
to London, so he was forced to run
away. Now he is one of the fore-
most actors of the day."
Prof. O'Neill went on to tell of
LAURA J. LIBBEY'S
Author Unsuccessful as Actress
and Newspaper Woman.
Louis Gold tells the story of Laura
Jean Libbey's life in an article writ-
ten for a recent issue of the Ameri-
"Nearly a quarter of a century
ago when I was seventeen, I was
typist for a while for Laura Jean
Libbey and she dictated to me a
long series of plays and articles,"
says the author. "She was at the
time about 42 years old and in-
clined to stoutness. Her complexion
was florid, her nose aquiline, andr
her lips full' and firm. She carried
herself with dignity, and spoke in
a pleasant, unhesitating contralto
"Miss Libbey wrote her first ro-
mance when she was 17, in the ear-
ly eighties. The style of this first
book and of all the succeeding ones
was essentially the same, they
shoved the mentality of 17 and
were addressed mainly to an audi-
ence of the same age," affirmed the
"She began writing plays after
her marriage," continued Louis
an interesting critical comment
given the players by one of the
leading Pittsburgh papers. "Amer-
ica could easily spare Ireland some
of her skyscrapers," he said, "if she
had just one dramatic company
which equalled the Abbey Players."
"It is generally conceded that the
season which those players spent
here 18 or 20 years ago was the~
greatest single influence in giving
impetus to the growth of the Little
Theatre movement in this country,"
concluded Prof. O'Neill.

Evening dresses grow consistent-
