Robinson, director of the Abbey
Theatre in Dublin, now the Irish
National theatre, and, author of
"The White Headed Boy," "The Far
Off Hills," and other well-known
plays. Mr. Robinson has made
many friends in Ann Arbor through
several visits here in the past few

Boy" and this year is bringing his
company from the Abbey theatre in
a repertory of Irish plays. ~
Mr. Robinson appraises in his in-

tour and with the Abbey theatre
company, he has viewed the situa-
