When actors spell out fantasy it looses its magic. The Charm the poignancy the Appeal to All Ages in this English classic of the irrational can Only be transmitted with an honest pretence. The animals on stage at Dorset Are neither animals nor people. By a theatrical sleight of hand they maintain an animal individuality while suggesting generalized human counterparts. The result is a Ster Optican depth a miraculous double exposure of meaning a comment on childhood and its triumphs of rational nonsense subtly satirizing an adult world of irrational necessity. Everything is suggested so the fun is spontaneous the characterizations free and easy and the evening a testimonial to the Power of All to believe the wildest flight of imagination at the twitch of a bears whisker. Patricia Carmichael staged this delightful evening As though she were studying the Topsy Turvy world of Marc Chagall. A hint Here a stroke there and to and behold a Bear an owl a Donkey appear. No feathers no fur no Rabbit ears a the characters appear out of the hat of the imagination which has been artfully set into orbit by a group of adroit technicians on stage.

There is Afree Wheeling and highly contagious audacity to a Winnie the Pooh a viewed As serious Art. Why should people pay Money to see an actor pretend he is a Bear suspended by a balloon 20 feet from Honey when the actor is sitting on a Stool wearing Street clothes the answer is that the whole pretence is funny and a lot More. Ifs Good to be asked to free yourself for a while from the tight Little Island of actuality. Its relaxing refreshing and strangely enough it Sharpens the perception of actuality when the curtain comes Down. A. A. Milne a classic Small boy and Bear tales Are like a malice in wonderland and a Peter pan a genuine release of satiric insight and a frankly prejudiced Appeal to imaginative rebirth. No one should deny himself the Chance to let go once in a while in the free flight of pure fantasy. Its like a drink of Clear cold country water after too Many cups of automat Coffee. Dorothy Lancaster tells the Story with Charm warmth and just the right touch of a you done to have to believe this if you done to want to whimsy. Philip Fisher is the perfect impersonation of the bumbling eager Bear suggesting a punch drunk fighter addicted to the Honey of life while looking like a Small boy with delusions of grandeur. Leora Shader suggests the irrational practicality of Christopher Robin without spelling it out and in a few final speeches makes the imaginative flight Complete with an intense poignancy which erases All consciousness of the fact that she is obviously a woman and As is True a wife and Mother besides. Patric Iozzo achieves a Complete Rabbit characterization without a single whisker or floppy ear a Triumph of actor impersonation which is completely convincing. Sydney Mea chem As a tiny pig maintains an illusion of fright ineptitude and diminutive size which is a wonder to watch. Fred Carmichael outdoes himself with a sinister sad portrait of a Donkey which is More startling than Karloff and As moving As Chaplin. Barry Dunleavey a owl is a carefully observed and perfectly combined humanization of owl characteristics Complete with Pince Nez Elizabeth Franz a frumpy Low comedy Kangaroo is a totally new and alive impersonation for an actress whose specially this summer has been High key suffering. Judith Page Murray provided the platforms and lecterns and everybody and his brother must have turned on the 158 Light changes.
