Theatre Royal, Merthyr. "A Village Priest," one of Mr. Sidney Grundy's best efforts, is the attraction at the Theatre this week. It is presented by a most capable company, whose interpretation yields an enjoyable entertainment to all who can ap- preciate a really high-class performance. Mr. William Grant's "Abbe Dubois," is a great contrast, to his "Jack Meredith" in "Edged Tools," and is another striking instance of bis wonderful versatility. Mr. Campbell Gold- smid, who is also among the company, in the role of "Jean Tarquiene," is becoming a familiar figure. He enjoys a well established popularity, and on Monday received an ova- tion. "Armand D'Arcy" is capably set forth by Mr. Henry Nunn, while of the ladies, Miss Marion Fawcett gives a quiet, but effective, picture of "Madame D'Aroy." Miss Mabel Durrant sustains the part of "Comtesse Tre- meillan" and "Marguerite" and "Jeanne" re- ceive expression at the hands of Miss Viotet Thorold and Miss Florence Dulhunty. The great London success, "Idols," from the Garrick Theatre, will be presented next week by the well-known Hutchison m&n&gemsnt. Ms. HBXBXBT FOBD. I "Idols" is the dramatization of Mr. W. J. Locke's novel of the same name by Mr. Roy Horniman, and was undoubtedly one of the biggest successes last year. It has an intensely interesting story, full of strong emotion, strong characters, with a plot that cannot fail to in- terest. It culminates in a murder and a trial of an innocent man for the crime. This trial, or court scene, is one of the finest ever staged, modelled on the Old Bailey complete in every detail; judge, jury, spectators, counsel, wit- nesses, policemen, etc.. over 40 persons appear- ing in this scene, which ends in a most startling manner. The play was produced by Mr. Percy Hutchison, for eight years stage manager and producer for Sir Charles Wyndham, and he has specially engaged the following well-known ar- tistes for the leading parts: Mks Edyth Croodail as "Irene Merriam," Miss Moira Cregan as "Minna Hart," Mr. A. B. Imeson as "Gerard Merriam," and Mr. Herbert Ford as the hero, "Hugh Coleman." The rest of the company and the mounting of the plav are of that stand- ard of excellence for which Miss Emma Hutch- ison and Mr. Percy Hutchison are famed. "Idols" being the 39th production during the 24 years of their management. This is the same company that recently appeared at the New Theatre, Cardiff.
