Plays at the Theatres. "The Fatal Wedding" has scored a success at the Grand Theatre, this week, probably to the strong "child interest" which forms the outstanding feature. Miss Ida Valli fills the principal child role, and her acting is, for a little girl of but ten a remarkable achievement. The main male parts are well taken bv Misses Mary Allestree and Houslev and Messrs. Payne and Henry. The play swings smoothly along from start to finish and the "cake-walk" dance, in which over 30 children participate, is one of the prettiest and most pleasing incidents of the kind seen at Swansea. At the Star Theatre Mr. Abbott has been giving a fine character study of Lord Nelson in the "Mariners of England, Robert Buchanan's play, which describes itself. Messrs. Doughty," Clifford and Lester prove capable assistants, and the final tableaux, depicting the historical scene at Trafalgar is well mounted. Next week the popular drama. "When the Lights are Low" will be staged. At the Grand Theatre, Miss Ada Molesworth (who has toured with Irving. Alexander, and Forbes Robinson) plays "Cigarette" in "Under Two Flags." the drama founded on Ouida's famous storv of Anglo-French military life. Oil Fridav night she plays "Lady Ursula,' the title role of Mr. Anthony Hope's charming comedy.
