Play review play goes on at Dorset when stage lights go off Manchester come meow your Horn. A comedy by Neil Simon Ope Ned last night at th1 Dorset playhouse presented but the caravan theatre to run tonight tomorrow and sunday nights staged by Patric Iozzo with the following cast Alan maker David Vacheron Peggy Evans Susan Kaslow Muddy maker James Davis or. Maker Edward Powell Connie Dayton Anne Bou i thee mrs. Maker Patric in Carmi bae i a visitor Lucie Woolf iop by William Gilbert the caravan company at Dorset is polishing off its 15th summer season this week with the lighthearted a come blow your not that the theater season is Over a far from it. This group will be gaining momentum As the leaves turn and continue to bring Southern Vermont Fine theater almost until Snow flies. Some of the actors who have been lightening our Lazy hazy crazy summer Days will be off this week for new York some for school and Many of the company which has been performing historical shows in Massachusetts will arrive soon to continue with what looks like a Fine fall series. As summer Heaters go Dorset is among the Lucky few. No Star vehicles cluttered with incompetents no Brassy amateurism no sensation Hungary or Way out experiments test the Dorset audiences try their patience or undermine their genuine interest in Good theater. Instead a Young company of Well trained Semi professionals present As honest and craftsman like a production each week As is humanly possible. The company this summer has developed Esprit de corps that a head and shoulders above other years a sort of collective Joy about working together which is infectious on stage and off. They can in fact take with them the realization that they have brought to this area genuine theater enthusiasm and Given hundreds that special gift a genuine theater experience. Dozens of Young people in this area have discovered theater through this group and hundreds of residents and visitors look Forward to their weekly visit. The Dorset audience is a highly literate one composed As it is of Many people whose careers have kept them continuously in Contact with books theater local National and International affairs. Any company that can meet their needs for theatrical truth and honest projection of ideas can be proud of itself can be sure it has accomplished in part at least what theater was invented for when the greeks called out the population of an entire City to show them plays. The problems last night at Dorset formed the ultimate test of real professionalism. Not Only was a thin play being brought to life and made into a challenging and satisfying study but a Power failure forced the actors to work by candlelight. When the lights went off the dialogue continued just As it does when your tube Burns out. Then flashlights picked out the speakers and George Blanchard could not give the actors the Benefit of his lighting until the final curtain Call. It was a technical problem All the More difficult because unexpected and like most catastrophes United actors and audience in a common Bond of understanding which made or. Simon s pathetic script Worth considering As serious drama. If the Telephone did not ring its Little Bell the actors certainly rang theirs. David Vacheron was Fine if Over plaintive and under suave in the Lead. Susan Kaslo was excellent As his Vermont weekend Girlfriend. James Davis was suave and delightful As the younger brother who discovers life. Edward Powell was Arlington Vallies and the state liquor store Arlington it. Will be open from 8 . Until noon labor Day. Adv. Aug. 30 convincing although too uni dimensional As the father. Anne Boultbee was excellent even though occasionally mannered As the heroes True love. Patricia Carmichael was Superb As the Over distraught Mother. Lucie Woolson was Type cast As everybody s Only aunt. J. P. Murray s Black and White set looked great in full Light and even better by candles and Patric Iozzo is to be congratulated on making this play seem like an important evening. The trouble with a come blow your Horny lies squarely with the writer. As a play it toys with sex to sneak in a serious thought but the thought turns out to be a gimmick to get the principals headed for the bedroom. It is no longer possible to present a father son War in less than serious form and to Start off with a rebellion and end with a capitulation is like telling the Washington marchers to go Back Home. It would be unfair to ask this play to make up its mind to be either comedy or drama. Or. Simon has not presented his actors or audience with enough meat from either plate to make a Choice possible. The work has no mind of its own to make up. Hats off to Esprit de corps they say Sarah Bernhardt could give a thrilling performance Reading the Telephone directory. The seven actors at Dorset this week make a Fine evening out of three or four dozen Blank pages. Who said acting was an easy profession Mary Dillmann headmaster and mrs. E. H. Henry gave a Buffet supper to 35 Burr and Burton faculty members and their wives wednesday night.
