Quite the most distinguished fac-

miscellaneous program.
Professor Besekirsky has just

Guy Maier is well k n o w n

pianist and as a collaborator with
Lee Pattison in the most famous

Mabel Ross Rhead will accom-
pany Mr. Besekirsky in his two
groups. The program is as follows:

The Constant Wife is by no
means thebest example of Somer-
set Maugham's famous Restoration
manner. But through the admir-
able presentation it got in Amer-
ica with Ethel Barrymore and
Frank Conroy and the almost
equally admirable talkie made by
Clive Brook, William Powell and
Ruth Chatterton, it has become the
most popular of his high comedies.
Maugham writes of a very fas-
cinating coterie-people who have
never been within working dis-
tance of an oven, a dish-cloth, or
an honest spade -- people quite
without ardours and ecstasies, in-
deed actually averse to emotion of
any sort but the desire for one an-
other, which they indulge some-
what indiscriminately.
The Constant Wife is a little des-
perately sophisticated. It tells of
Constance who reaches a perverse-
ly intellectual position about her
husband's unfaithfulness. She ad-
mits her husband is slightly in-
flammable, even believes him to
be by nature a polygamist. But how
can she complain? She has a com-
fortable home. Marriage is her
trade. Her husband bought her,
and unless she achieves her own
economic independence, she has no
right to complain.
This economic interpretation of
holy wedlock she carried through
with sardonic strength. She in-
dulges her decorative talent, earns
considerable money, pays a thous-
and pounds to her husband which
she says will cover her keep for the
last fifteen years. Then she an-
nounces that she is off to Italy
with an armorous motorist who
had been meanwhile renewing
youthful vows of attachment to
Her surgical huband swears a lit-

vacation, and'be his constant wife
again. His lechery had only been
casual. He had lied to his attract-
ive intelligent wife, and taken up4
with an idiotic friend of hers (the
woman with a "slipping knee") on-
ly as an adventure. He had phil-
andered quite without conviction
was somewhat disturbed by his
wife having proved it to him, but
eagerly pleads for her return.
Clearly, Mr. Maugham is crack-
ing a smart whip at the conception
of marriage as a state of life-long
ecstacy with the protagonists
showing passionate fidelity. He
does it very urbanely with a style
that is invariably distinguished,
and a dramatic skill that no con-
temporary dramatist surpasses. His
wit is deliciously daring and con-
sistent enough to provide a stimu-
lating evening in following it alone.
It is a wholly delightful play.
