Two St age e 'vices
By BETTY GRIFFITH
Two devices of playwrights, one
long used, of gathering the characters
around a dinner table, and one more
recent of having the actors indulge
in nibbling throughout the play, have
been combined to form hilarious
comedy by J. B. Priestly, the famous
English novelist and dramatist, in his}
current hit "Laburnum Grove" which
is coming to the Dramatic Festival
with its complete Broadway cast, in-
cluding Edmund Gwenn, Melville
Cooper, Elizabeth Risdon, and Molly1
In this comedy, which will have its
cpening here on May 20, these devices
are used not merely to have the char-
acters doing something but as essen-

the play a certain flavor. The six
bananas which Melville Cooper eats
at every performance of "Laburnum
Grove" serve to integrate the char-
acter and to give it the Priestly rich-

Edriund Gwenn), a London suburba-
nite, sits down. to his Sunday night
supper, he has with him around the
table his brother-in-law and his wife
who are living on his money, and his
daughter, Elasie, and her suitor, a
used car salesman who is attracted to
a girl with so respectable and well
established a father.
Just at the beginning of the meal,
the father suggests that he is a clever
counterfeiter sought by Scotland
Yard. The supper party at first think
it a joke, but as the father goes on
they become convinced of the truth
of the story.'
Fromn this point the farcical com-
plications mount to an unusual climax
in the last act. Because of its origi-
nality and the action of its comedy,
"Laburnum Grove" has been placed
among the outstanding hits of recent
