The Theatre: The Best Plays: Apr. 13, 1925

These are the plays which, in the light of metropolitan criticism, seem most important:


WHAT PRICE GLORY?−The rumble of guns and the snatches of laughter that made war a stern but not so unhappy hell on the Western Front.

THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED−Pauline Lord gives the best performance in town as the waitress who married by mail and betrayed her master on the wedding night.

THE WILD DUCK−Mr. Ibsen receives what he deserves−a good performance.

WHITE CARGO−White man and black woman drift irresistibly together under the poisonous influence of desert loneliness.
