Few who have seen Miss Barrymore 'on the stagel will ever "forget her rendition of Constance .Middle ton In "The constant Wife" or her portrayal of Ophelia, orher pexform- : a nee as Sister Mary in the -Scar- let Sister Mary." But despite her varied experience, her opening at : stockbridge will mark the first time-she has ever appeared in a summer stock company, and ; further-mare, it will be her initial, stage appearance . in the Berk&hiEes. although ,she "remembered, for her magnificent performance in the movie "Rasputin" in whichibshe appeared .with her two brothers.
