Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian play-panned, praised NEW YORK (CP) Critic Cllve Barnes of UIE New York Times wields his scalpel with surgical deftness in dissecting the Feydeau comedy, There's One in Every Marriage, and comes up with more bad things (bout it than good. The production is that of the Stratford Naional Theatre of Canada which opened Monday night at the Royale Theatre with broadway producer Davit Merrick underwriting the cost of the New York showing. It is an adaptation by Suzanne COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT CITY OF LETHBRIDGE National Lifeguard Course Fritz Sick Pool Wednesday evenings p.m. January 12th le March 15, 1972.

Gross-nann and Paxlon While- head of George Feydeau's Le Dindon, which translated mean The Turkey, a title Barnes notes makes New York producers blanch. While it has fun in it, i has little Barne says. "ITicre are some gtxx. performances here, but anyone who has seen the play with the Comedie Rob ert Hirsh as un likly to be completely entranced. Yet virtually no Fey- deau farce can be completely lost and there is genuine merri- ment here." Feydeau wrote 39 farces and in them people rarely go to bed as Feydeau laughed at a turn' of-Uie-century Paris and its middle class. Coquettish wives, faithless husbands, comic suitors and absurd servants, Feydeau's cast list is invariable and yet somehow always charming. This play is about the double standard that Parisian society then placed upon men and women. A wife is resolved not x revenged upon her husband's nfidelity, and it Is clear that what is good for the goose is not good for the gander. Barnes says the Stratford pro- duction of Marriage often seems a little coarse, a little lacking in style and plumage. "Yet the si- uations are still hilariously there."

"It never glitters or swings, and de- spite Alan Barlow's cheerfully atmospheric designing of the scenery and costumes, we al- ways seem far nearer French Canada than to France. For Uie most part the actors are nol really up to this quality of play. You can play Shakespeare aver- agely well to excellent effect, but Feydeau will .be nothing if Mi brilliant." But Barnes says there are a few exceptions in the Stratford production. "Roberta Maxwell's sense of wifely grace and strangled out- rage is most convincing as Lu- cienne, Tony Van Bridge bum- bled happily as the military doctor and Joseph Mate- had Uie right sluggard dignity as the old servant who knows his mas- ter's place. Peter Donat as Uie feverish would-be wife-stealer and Jack Creley as the eager yet daring bachelor also had Jieir moments, but the farce never caught fire. "It seemed like a minor con- spiracy among the actors, the director and the adaptors to sell the. play slightly yet fatally short, and to make a turkey out of The Turkey." Critics generally gave warm reviews to the production. Leonard Harris of CBS-TV said the Canadian company had 'done a marvellous job."

Her face is scrubbed and de- void of makeup. She wears her hair in close-cropped, early Mia Farrow style. Her dress is formless and midi-length. Yet there is no denying the talent and magnetism of Glenda Jackson, who last April won the Academy award for best actress because of her performance in her Uiird film, Women in Love i Her allure was demonstrate in the Polo Lounge of the Bev erly Hills, where she was 1 ing lunch on her first visit to Hollywood. A bald gentleman from a nearby booth came over and said: "Glenda Jackson, want you to know I was pul for you. I think you are superb I'm glad you won. We've never met, but I had to shake your band. No, I must kiss you." He did. And then Yul Brynner returned to his booth. The incident pleased the ac tress but failed to ruffle her Nothing seems to. At 35, she lives a well-ordered life, par forming in films that appeal to her, Buch as Sunday Bloodj Sunday nnd Mary, Queen o: Scots, both of which could pu her in Oscar contention again. LIVES QUIETLY When not working, she lives quietly in the London borough of Greenwich with her art dealer husband, Roy Hodges, and their son Daniel, 2. About her uninlerest in glamor: "For one thing, I never had time for it. I was always rushing to rehearsals for one thing or another, and it was simply too much trouble. Be- I don't think producers would cast me for my glamor. "I realize that things were different in Hollywood in the old days. But then the actresses had something to sell besides the ability to perform. They be- came typed as glamor girls.' Miss Jackson was unable to attend the Oscar affair, anc she's glad.
