Miss Gertrude Rideout Directs Casjt which Re veals Talent and Training, Charm .and Delight in Their Two Plays,
Concord.—Some of the beet acting ever seen on A Concord stage charmed and delighted the audience which gathered in the Concord High school auditorium Friday evening to see two plays, “Two Crooks and A Lady" by Eugene Pillot, and “Two Elizaoeths" by Netts Synett presented by Concoid High school 'pupils under the tti. Taction of Mise Gertrude H. Rideout of -the faculty.
.“Two Crooks and A Lady" is a Harvard “47 Workshop" play. Miller the Hawk (William Delaney; enters the apartments of Mr». Stme-Vane, (Olive Grierne) a helpless Invalid, confined to a wheelchair and unable to move, except do turn her eyes and to talk. His guest is a valuable string of dis. moods supposed to be 33 in number. Hie accomplice ta Lucille (Mary Rtssltano) a maid in the house. Mrs. Rime, Vane's companion Is Miss Jones (Sally Weadock). Idles Jones is called out by a ruse •od the helpless Invalid is at the mercy of the two crooks, but by her wits end strength of character playa one crgok against the other to their undoing. Mrs. Slms-Vane ta tortured to force her to reveal aka hiding place of. the diamonds hut when Lucille is called^^M
abe plays upon Miller and actually alk wa him to take the diamonds persuading him to keep his posses, sion secret from-Lucille, by playing on his Jealousy and arousing! hts suspicions. She plays’ the seme game with Lucille, wuo in a jealous! frensy at discovering Miller's treachery and suspecting “another woman" shoots him down. The
police (Thomas Todd, Jr., end Fred Meyllger) enter and the crooks,
■leach of which has shown further gSJIevlddnee of unworthenness, Mill -ii Hby stealing a gold atamfPbox after I Hthe agreement had been made, and ■flrficllle by trying to retain one oil Hflte^ftrmonde, are carried alway, tils* Grieme carried off hor very
■ dlfflicuM. pert without a -flaw. Never ll! to our close observation did she
■ move a muscle and her speech,
■ though to all appearances made H with tho difficulty of a paralyzed igf invalid, had an expression which ill told of ber resolute character.
Ill Mary Rizzitano played the maid
if with a convincing portrayal of Bl greed and heartlessness, of flaming
■ Jealousy and yet with a feminine!
■ timidity at the sight of blood. She lf! wan right lu her part from start
■ til finish. William Delaney did line
■ work as Miller and Sally Weadock Iff WM a high and mighty Miss Jones.
■ Thomas Todd, Jr., and Fred Heyll-H ger were entirely adequate. |
■ in striking contrast was “Two]

to* this part Is tH^g|g story of | discover, draw
'Elisabeth tSay© (LaviftaVWillis)
beloved of Will Neville (Fritr Wimblad) supposed-to be an In-pecunious gentleman. sir Henry tiaye (James Powers), her brother, tor these financial reasons bitter. <y opposes the suit and the suitor. He sets upon her many wealthy suitors of his own chosing and vigorously chides hts sister for re-jevtlhg them. Elizabeth dreams of the days of as greater feminine freedom and of her lover coming on an air ship. Her lover wno has been in Coreign parts does arrive. ua» made his fortune and of course .s now acceptable to Sir Henry.
Sweet naturalness, quaint cnarm, perfect understanding of ber part, loveliness in the bewitching glances and fleeting expression of aer eyes and face, Miss Lavin.a Willis was a picture we shall neve*-torget, and when have we seen such anomer. We are indeed grateful for our opportunity. Jane Daniels as Margaret, her maid companion was a dainty counterpart aud second only to Elizabeth in tier charm and loveliness. Fritz Winkled was a stalwart and manly, yet tender and a perlect lover, and the love making as sincere ana convincing as any we have seen. Youth must be served and youth WM triumphant.' James Poweis was a handsome figure and clever and convincing in ms acting.
In Part ll, the same old story was enacted In modern times by Elisabeth Neville (Mary Chase) a descendant of the earlier Elisabeth, her friend Joan (Mary Murray) her brother, Bob Neville, (Jack Edmonds) and her lover Will Stratton (Lauren Kingman), Stretton alio appears as without money or position, but wins success ny an air plane invention. He actually arrives by air to carry out the dream of the early Elizabeth.
To make the final Impression move mystic; the cany characters come boick ai the clo* a and the later events become a part of their prophetic dreams.
Mary Chase is the sweet wad natural dashing modern git! aud Mary Murray her- able «*;cond. Lauren Kingman the vir»ie aud handsome lover; and Jack Edmonds the handsome Bob McVille,” a sight tor sore eyes" indeed. Duce more were we attracted by tile naturalness of the love making, often so stiff aud perfunctory on the amateur stage. Again we thank these young people tor tho delightful evening they gave us.
Talented young musicians, Claire Kent, violin; aud Elsa Liudstroni, piano; added their large share to our pleasure with their numbers.
(Bouquets were given the feminine members of the cast at the curtain call and to Miss Rideout who has such wonderful ability to out, and develop such talent.
