The Clement Balnbridge Company will present Augustus Thomas' delightful Southern play, "Alabama," at the Academy of Music Monday evening, April 20. Mr. Thomas has furnished a strong argument against the statement that the native born writers do not lend themselves-to—the_lltera=- ure of the stsiRe. American people want plays that they can understand, ilays that bring before them the people, the customs and the country they enow. Foreign/plays are built on foreign ideas, conceived in a foreign spir- t, and are out of sympathetic connection with the American people. It is n this that Mr. Thomas has made his success, • He* has given the people a play that they can understand; he has respected their prejudices; he has been true to American ideas. "Alabama" does not abound in stirring scenes, melodramatic, situations and declamatory lines. It moves along as quietly as the life it reveals. There is a vein of quaint and subtle humor and it is never forced or coarse. It IB true to the life it pic turea; It is bright in dialogue, clean in plot, direct in story and interesting in characters. It is redolent with the sound of nature. It is something tn think of with deliprht—this idyl of th* Sonth—not alone for the passing pleasure it gives the spectator, but fnr what it means to the American stage. In itself it has the subtle charm, poesy. It brings with it the Bpft airs and dreamy quietude of the somnolent South. It appeals to the eye with a series of pictures breathing chivalry and sentiment, twit) characteristics of theardorous Southron; to the ear with the musical dialect, whose spell is potent, and to the mind with a harmonious blending of all these mellowing influences. It is a veritable Gradgrind. who will look at Alabama and nqt feel his soul soften and expand, and his heart warm with human love; and, for- tunately.there are very few Gradgrinds in modern life. In almost every nature there is a cord of sentiment and poetry, which vibrates muaically when rightly touched, and it ia Mr. Agustus Thomas' distinction to have found tbe delicate manner of doing this difficult thing.
