If its Wauchter you want a Mary Mary will give it to you this week at the Dorset playhouse in the opening a bit of the 18th season of the caravan theatre. Jean Kerr s play is Crisp with wit and bubbling with comedy played by a competent company who succeed in bringing the Bennington drive in direct from its a re i e re showings spacial engagement at special prices for one full week june 22-29. Now everyone can see the most loverly motion picture of ill time i Llly Faut a Nim a Winner of 8 Academy awards including Best picture. Urbane flavor of the play to pastoral Dorset. A of the Story is about a recently divorced couple Bob and Mary Mck Ellaway who have yearned for each other for nine months but never Given in to the Healing Telephone Call. Oscar a Middle aged tax lawyer inadvertently plays cupid in bringing the mistake Ridden couple together. Nothing happens on the first Day of the reunion except the introduction of Mary a rival slithering Apricot and wheat germ enthusiast Tiffany to whom Bob is engaged and the introduction of Dirk Wise and compassionate film idol who asks Mary to Elope with him. The dialogue sparkles with drollery from All but the humourless Tiffany. From the irrepressible Mary the wit is spit and vinegar. One can see Why Bob the Young publisher inept and insecure was put off by her Salty observations. Bob has an ego of spun Glass that could be shattered by the striking of a clock in the next room. In a moment of truth with Dirk Mary admits she was once a Plain Gawky girl and she needs to be told she s Beautiful though this is hard to believe played As she is by Betsy Wells comely and vibrant. Mary explains that she developed her rapid fire wit to compensate for a Lack of attractiveness but she developed it too Well. It is what soured Bob. Oscar the Wise All seeing lawyer is the detached balanced Down to brass takes codger Welcome in any family. He is played admirably by David lever and i am sure More than one Matron in the audience was tempted to invite him to Tea to have a sen i a Hill of 11 Sorin How cd now thru Mon Walt Disney a most hilarious comedy i fld Hhd Umi Chw Coom a Nam Blini Tel pm Shmu Cich 61 Aion jts.

Tiffany Young heiress moving like an a reluctant Panther dressed All mod and Rocker would cause Many a Man to suggest a whizz Maroo hardly raises an Eyebrow when she loses her prize of the moment ill tempered and testy Bob. Your heart hardly bleeds for her. She takes this loss like the proper pseudo sophist late she is and one feels that she will go on to an operator of a health food shop. Dirk comes on splendidly though through an artificial contrivance but once he arrives one is glad he is there. He gives Mary the boost that she needs cheerfully airs the actors life As being something Short of pure hell and shows clod Bob what a gentleman can be. Fred Carmichael is handsome enough to play a fabulous Star and deft enough to fall into Brief love with Mary. He has that actors gift of telling an anecdote with suspense and Charm. One might have known Mary and Bob go Back together though they have Little in common except some knowledge of publishing and a love of smoking. A of the setting by Jody Briggs is what it should be tasteful modest liable a supporting the action but not detracting from it. The direction by Patricia Carmichael is excellent disciplined movement Swift timing but with pauses sufficient to get the most out of every scene. Each actor deserves a special note of his performance. Barry Jenner had an unsympathetic role in clod Bob but his Good looks and sense of comedy especially in the falling asleep scene made the play Man seem almost human. Miriam Wolkove played Tiffany As a mannered and affected drama student As Tiffany probably was. David lever played the tax lawyer family adviser As of he liked it. Fred Carmichael did Justice to Dirk Winston balancing the humor of the part with compassionate warmth. Mary Mck Ellaway was in Good hands or in Good stage presence with Betsy Wells who played the lovelorn Mary with poignancy and who Rose to the part of the Loving and forgiving wife persuasively.
