GRAND THEATRE, CARDIFF. The Lucky Star delighted a laige and interest- ed audience at"tho Grand Theatre, Cardiff, ou Mon- day evening. The prece, which is powerfully written, is replete with exciting incidents, and is interwoven with interesting and humorous details which, in addi- tion to proving valuable adjuncts to the successful rendering of the play, cause much merriment. The plot turn upon tne daring and under-handed proceed- ings of one Sir Richard Malet, a part which is ably sustained by Mr. Arthur C. Percy. Malet endeavours to possess himself of Constance Weddington, who is betrothed to Philip Esdale, and in order to do so he plans a series of base attacks upon Esdale. The latter J8 forced to tlco the country and joins the Army, being sent for service to the Soudan. Eventually the crimes are traced to Malet, and this becoming known to Esdale he returns home, and finds that Malet has been eudeavouring to persuade Constance to marry him. Malet finally smrender.; and peace is restored. The scenes are all of the brightest description, those depicting incidents in the Soudan War being particu- larly striking. Miss Emma Rainbow, in the role of Constance, plays her part in an exceedingly sympath- etic manner, and/ Mr. Herbert Priucep as Esdale leaves nothing to be desired. A word of praise is due to Madamu Wanda Zaleska for her impersonation of Phcebe, a gipsy girl, and also to Mr. Cecil Morand, who ably interprets the humorous portion of the play. On Friday evening the favourite drama, East Lynne.vill be staged for Miss Rainbow's benefit, and thaWady will appear in her most popular charac- ter- that of Lady Isabel.
