-The. Holy City."
"The Holy City" Clarence Ben
nett's great play was given at the
opera hoas' on Monday evening and
was attended by a very large and
ience. As it is seldom that a Grants
Pass aulienoe has the opportunity of
listening to so fine a production as
j this, the progress of the play was
j followed with keen appreciation
j which wonld, however, have been
considerably enhanced by a supply of
programs which we:e for sime reason
' lacking.
During the progress of the play
I some very beautiful sceniu effects are
produced and the tragic parts are
impressively thrilling. One of the
most noteworthy things of the play is
the ability of each actor to impress
; the audience with the character of the
personage represented. Thus the play
s'iows King Herod weak and helpless
among his scheming couuselors;
Pontius Pilate, a politician without
scruple; Judas Iscairot, avaricious,
unscruplous aud yet vaccillating;
; Marias the patrician, a atrong, clean i
enaraoter in the midst of corruption.
The leading part is that of Salome,
impersonated by Luella Morey, who
portarys with wonderful skill the
; passions and traits which dominate
an d inuke op the formidable character
ot tnis semi-Kavage princess.
The tone of the play is elevating
and the purity of the new religion of:
Christ is set in sharp contrast with !
the barbarity, fierceness and corrupt- i
ion of the age.
