MR. BENSON'S COMPANY TO VISIT NEATH i GREAT ATTRACTION. r: A quite unparalleled event in the te t he"? rf nh' is thp forthcoming visit te the Gwyn Hall, ot Mr. F. R. IvLsou s Shakespearean Co., numbering ov^r artistes, and carrying a large stock of scenery. It has bfn sard tha? Sh^enZ spells rum to a theatrical manager, utiles he indeed be Sir Henry Irving, or Mr. Beerbohm Tree, whose acting and elaborate staging of plays made for success. There is one name, however, that has long been associated with Shakespearean plan's—the name of one wha has laudably sought to keen alive an interest in the works of the greatest dramatist the world has ever known. To Mr. F. R. Benson, the thanks of all lovers of the works of the immortal Bard are due, for encouraging a study of his plavs and comedies among a number of young ;èud in- tellectual actors and actresses, and affording opportunities from time to time in different parts of the country, of some of the best known plays being presented. No one q1Íte holds the same place and position in the theatrical world, as regards Shakespeare, as that occupied by Mr. Benson no one ever having attempted the same persevering a.nd sometimes individual treatment of the works of the immortal Bard. Neath should feel complimented at being included in the tour of this celebrated company through Wales, especially when we remember where these1 artistes have played, and how for nearly 15 years the Shakespearean Festival at Strat- ford-on-Avon has been under Mr. Reason's entire management. In the course of cen versation with Mr. Alban Limpus, 1 ne of Mr. Benson's large business staff, who has already arrived here, we learn that Mr, Benson is actually getting ready and < snip- ping an entire company, who will shortly sail for Jaihaica. We can only say that we trust that this expensive undertaking will be as success!ill a's it, deserves. Our r.iy cause for regret is that the company can only spare two nights, the 19th and 20Hu The plays that are down for production hem are "The Merchant of Venice" and Ihnn. let." Although it is a fortnight, from the date of these performances, Mr. Limpus tells us that some of the seats at the Hall h«ve been eagerly snapped up. and we -bould advise all our readers who appreciate high class of work to book early, as this opportunity of witnessing the perfor aancs of this excellent company is not one So h* missed. Seats can be booked at Whit'-uig • ton's.
