Most people expect "Twin Deds" lo be
As it matter of fact It Is neither ono
nor the other.
Most farccn nre lbsenlc because they
put the cause of tlm whole trouble wny
back In the past, The wronit Kortttettmn
Kcts found In the wrong lady's company;
the loVInK anil Innocent husband can't
explain why he has been out all night.
And then the thin? gets fought out for
Mnrprnret Mayo prefers another dra
matic method. Whether It's "Oaby .Mine"
or 'Twin Deds. she starts with a family
QUnrrel, which Isn't 'supponed to do much
more than supply "atmosphere" nnd set
the sails for trouble. Alone townrd the
beg I mi I riff of the second act, she lets you
bejrln to see the roelts ahead. At the drop
of the curtain the breakliiK waves are
dashing; hlKh nnd saylnft, "Monti, the
Dago tenor, has picked out the wron.t
flat nnd (rone to bed In Hie nbcnt hill
band's half of the twin couches." And all
through the third net tho stern and rock,
bound const of tempestuous fiirclem
trouble Is poiimlliiir up unit down nuclei
AT THE THEATRES LAST NIGHT
that poor couple's shallow shallop of
tt Isn't n bad system. It makes noil
think that the openlns net mo a little
slim In this case much slimmer than In
"Baby Mine' but it lenves yon with the
final, IhiKcrlnK Impression it having
rocked wildly In your Boat for n good deal
longer tlmo thnn you actually did. And
In "Twin Beds," the system has been
pushed to the point of producing a more
crowded nnd complicated and confused,
and therefoio, more cachlnnatloua last
act than the American stage has known
In many years.
Very probably tho whole thing would
have been funnier ct If tho company
at tho derrick had played It In that over
best farce key the deadly serious, the
absolutely natural. Instead, they most
of them, anyway shouted nnd grabbed
chairs nnd did things which would have
betrayed them to the others If It hadn't
happened up on a plntform about 10 times
better lighted than any room.
They "got nway with It." flay Cox
can get awny with ant'.:ng. A man who
can disrobe In such amazingly funny
ways "as Mr. Carrlllo can put a wordless
but rousing climax on the quietest of
second nets. And In the excitement of
the moment nobody Is going to notice
that Earle L'ootho acts Just like a stage
But how much more the actors would
have got out of "Twin Beds" If they had
tried to put leal characters Into It. Imag
ine John Wcstley playing the husband as
a genuinely nervous young man Instead
of a well-fed, bounding broker who
couldn't possibly worry over his wife.
Imagine if thoy had all tried as hard
as Zalna Curzon, who was really very
charming und naive and therefore plausi
ble nnd amusing an the young wife or
tribulation. Imagine If they had all had
the art of that veteran of 0 victories,
Alice John, who can resist May Vokeslng
or Maude Kburnelng an Irish maid.
But "Twin Beds" was funny, anyway.
It wasn't very delicate, perhaps. But It
certainly never leered. And, its Jokes on
mm very joiceaDie subject or twin beds
were good Jokes. Moreover, whatever
may be suld In derogation of the Castor
and Pollux of furniture, they nil a long
felt want in farce. Once upon n time,
when a young husband stayed out of his
own bed nil night, he got Into innocent

FISKE O'HARA AT WALNUT
Irish Tenor Singa New Songs in New
Flscke O'Hnra, with a new array of
"catchy" Irish songs, appealed to ad
vantage at the Walnut In his latest suc
cess "Kilkenny," written bv Augustus
Pltou. Sr. The play is of the romantic
Irish type which hus always been a suit
able vehicle for Mr. O'Hara. There Is
very little plot, but what there Is, holds
the 'attention of tho audience with Its
clean humor, nnd Mr. O'Hara's songs.
The action takes place In Kilkenny, the
same place whero the cats come from.
In 1310 during carnival time. The story
concerns the love affairs of lllchurd
Desmond and Molna Carroll who have
been giving amateur "theatricals" for
charity. Moinu's guardian wishes her to
marry Maurice I.evlne, but this Is not to
be. The play ends with the hero und
heroine marrying, a lost duushter re
v united to her family, and the vllllan
forced to leave the "ould sod "
Tho part of Illchard was portrayed by
flake O'ilara, while Anna Hamilton made
a pleasing Molna. Wiliinm t xfn,...
was seen an Maurice I.evine, Desmond's
enemy and rival for the hand or Molna.
Miss Marie Qulnn, who In private life
U Mrs. Flake O'llaru. us Kitty O'Toole,
kept the audience laughing by the clever
manner In which she handled her bash
ful naval lieutenant. Oood character
acting was furnished by J. p. Sulllvun as
Martnln O'Toole. Others who contributed
to the success of the piece were Adelaide
Matthews, Male Bloodgood. J, B. Miller.
Henry Duffy and Eliza Mason.
Mr. O'ilara used his pleasing tenor
voice to advantage throughout the piece,
and during the three acts Introduced
several songs. "Contrary Mary CUry"
proved to be the most popular, although
4rsjaiiu is jreiana to ale" and "Dear
Mather Mine" had to be encored.
If you know a clerk In a drugstore
who recites the "Gladiator" at tho annual
church entortalnment, leave him alone.

enough to buy ham nnd liennp for his

clothes that brought everybody to tho
front door when he passed but now nil Is
changed. It you want to know the end of
the story you'll have to see Mclntyro nnd
Jleath at Keith's till week. They ex
plain fully how talent Is often a curse In

sketch, "The (lenrgla MlustreK" They
were given a warm welcome and their re
turn to vaudeville will no doubt bring ttiein
a golden reward.

because they get light down to the root of

In all fairness It must be said, how
ever, that Homer U. Mason and Mar
guerite Kceler In their one-act play,
"Married," won as irnny laughs ns the

tho nucleus of a three-act comedy. It
repeated Its former success and churned
the house Into an uprc'.i'.

modest Knickerbocker Theatre last night
with the opening of "The Trail of the
Lonesome I'lne." with Eleanor Moutell In
the leading role. As for the play Itself,
It sot a bad start owing to Frank Elliott's
tendency to forget his lines. Miss Montell
saved the day in the flrBt act, though, by
prompting him herself. Later on Elliott
rei-ovared himself and the play moved
with ease that is characteristic of the
Knickerbocker productions. A thing that
should be remedied in the management of
