On Monday evening, a large and fashionable audience crowded the Public Hall, Colwyn Bay, so far (at any rate) as the three-shilling reserved seats were concerned, the occasion being a performance, by local amateurs, of Jerome K. Jerome's one-act play "Barbara" and H. J. Byron's three-act comedy "Weak Woman," the proceeds (which were evidently very satisfactory) going in aid of a fund for reducing a debit balance in connexion with the Colwyn Bay Golf Club. The scenery used seemed just what was required, and the curtain (containing a view of an old mill, —a charming view) aroused very favourable comments. In the intervals and whenever desir- able for heightening the artistic effect of the playing, one or other of the two pianofortes was ably presided-over by Mr David Hughes, Mrs Sewell, or Miss N. Bownass High praise for the capital way in which everything moved smoothly forward, was undoubtedly due to whoever was res- ponsible for making the requisite arrangements, i.e., the Stage Manager (Mr D. D. Maopherson) and all who cordially worked towards the carrying out of his plans; Mr Macpherson has had, we were informed, considerable experience, and as a Stage Manager it would certainly be no easy matter to find his equal amongst brother-amateurs. The first piece performed was Jerome K. Jerome's play Barbara," the scene being laid in a London sitting-room, and the time being notified as the present In this piece, which we must say ends rather too abruptly, and none too happily, and in a manner suggesting various insoluble conundrums as to future happenings (in this being reminiscent of the momentous unsolved question closing Stockton's The Lady or the Tiger ? "), a start is made with two cross-currents of romance,—Barbara (Miss Janet Wood) having lost touch of her relations through a shipwreck occurring when she was a child and Miss Lilie Leyland (Miss N. Bownass) and Mr Cecil Norton (Mr S. Wood), two lovers, not having gumption enough to come to anything else thm misunderstand- ings. Barbara shows Cecil how he, in his ignorant bashfulness, is throwing away every chance of happiness for himself and Lilie, and lie is in process of effervescent amendment when Mr Finnicum (Mr D. D. Macpherson) is ushered-in and tells Barbara, in the absence of the lovers, how Cecil is the heir of his only sister who was lost in a shipwreck, and has con- sequentlv come into a. fortune of three hundred a year left to her. In the course of Mr Finnicum's story, Barbara perceives that she is the missing heiress, but decides upon keeping to herself the proofs of her identity, so that the lovers may the more speedily marry. Just at this crisis, the lovers burst in, and Lilie introduces Cecil as her betrothed, and consequently as a brother to Barbara, to whom Lilie has previously said that she would always be a sister. Cecil and Barbara indulge in a brotherly and sisterly hug, whereupon Mr Finnicum tells Cboil of his good fortune, and Lilie has to submit to an embrace from her betrothed, which ends the piece, the actors being enthusiastically recalled by the audience. Barbara was played most excellently tru) to life, a somewhat difficult task when Mr Finnicum gagged to a consider- able extent, albeit his part was throughout performed in a manner pleasing to the audience. Cecil and Lilie also afforded the audience great pleasure by artistic performance of parts which were by no means easy.. After a short interval, Byron's comedy "Weak Woman" was presented in three acts, the cast being as follows:-Dr Fleming (a London Physician), Dr W. D. Fraser; Captain Ginger (of the Bungleshire Buffs), Mr D. D. Macpherson; Arthur Medwyn (a Young Farmer), Mr F. W. Stubbs; Tootal (a Provincial Swell), Mr C. H. Brindley Frederick Fanshawe (Cousin of the Misses Gaythorne), Mr John ('ornwall; Edwards (a manservant), Mr A. Robinson; The Misses Helen and Lilian Gaythorne (Cousins), Miss Dyas and Miss M. Grant; Mrs Guun (a Distant Relative), Miss L. Porter. The scene first shown, was the exterior of a Country House, where Arthur Medwyn is seen sauntering about the walks, evidently seeking the cousins, when he espies Lilian Gaythorne and the curate, playing croquet; but soon they part and Lilian comes face to face with Medwyn, and, before the conversation has gone on very far, Miss Helen Gaythorne appears on the terrace. Soon Mr Tootal and Captain Ginger are on the scene, when they are told of a distant relation, and soon the distant relation, Mrs Gunn, escorted by Dr Fleming, appears and takes her seat on a garden chair in a snug corner. The appearance of the two last characters was the occasion of a hearty reception, and of a hearty out- burst of tipplause,-the make-up of Miss L. Porter as Mrs Gunn being really a work of art. Frederick Fanshawe, a cousin who had been living in Mexico, returned to the old home in the garb worn out there, making him an excellent "Mexican Joe." Evidently Captain Ginger and the Provincial Swell were sweet on the Cousins, but did not know which of the two had the money. As the party made their exit from the grounds, at the call of the dinner-gong, Mr Medwyn (the Young Farmer) escorted Lilian, Dr Fleming taking Helen quietly into the mansion. Fanshawe, not wishing to be left altogether in the cold, took the only opportunity left, and escorted Mrs Gunn, leaving Tootal and the Captain all alone together. The curtain dropped, and cordial applause followed. The second scene was the Misses Gay- thorne's drawing-room, the first to enter being Edwards, the man-servant, with tea. After tea, owing to a secret having been divulged, Fanshawe, who had been appointed bailiff, was dismissed, after which the second Act closes. In the third Act (with no change of scenic setting), Tootal and Edwards enter, and a bargain is made that, if Captain Ginger called, Edwards should say that the cousins were not in. but (in or no) in comes Ginger, whereupon the Young Farmer and Lilian enter the room, and, upon Tootal and Ginger applying for the vacant position of bailiff, they were ordered off at once (" in case it should rain") and, on being offered umbrellas, they went up to Medwyn and Lilian, and told them to keep their umbrellas, the attitudes and expressions bringing down the house." When Captain Ginger appeared in uniform, it was the signal of general hilarity, and during this scene,—when Helen is so grieved that it transpires that the property is left to Frederick Fanshawe, and no) to either of the cousins, -just at this moment Medwyn meets Captain Ginger, and tells him the news about the will, and says that the property is left to someone in the house. The Captain, of course, takes the lucky party to be Mrs Gunn, and loses no time in exchanging vows of undying affection, and SJon they are in each other's arms, to the great amusement of the audience. Just then, the company enter, and find the Captain and Mrs Gunn embracing each other. Dr Fleming conveys the true state of things to the Captain, who, at first staggered, comes-to when the doctor informs him that Mrs Gunn has a private income of her own. And, as the last scene closes, all the artistes appear on the stage, and take part in the final appeal. The production of {this highly interesting Comedy was capital, each of the artistes capably fulfilling their characters; where all are excellent it is hard to choose, but, if a choice must be made, the palm cannot but be awarded to Miss Dyas and Mr Cornwall. Tqe audience expscted a reasonably good enter- tainment, but found that it far passed their expecta- tions it is therefore generally hoped that the Talented Amateurs of Colwyn Bay will be induced to appear in other plays ere long, to afford, by the display of their abilities, wholesome enjoyment to their fellow-townspeople, whilst at the same time furnishing needed nid to some good object in the Bay.
