8 Feb 1926 The New WordProfessional
Read Narrative
‘The [Bristol] Little Theatre Company this week are reviving three plays by Sir James M. Barrie, each of which bring back - to many at least - vivid recollections of those crowded days of campaigning. The mystery, the fantasy, the inscrutable, is each exemplified in these three pieces, and the infinite artistry of the master of stagecraft, and of diction, protrudes itself from practically very line in “The New Word,” “The Old Lady Shows Her Medals,” and “A Well-remembered Voice.” The first of the plays gave Little Theatre patrons … an excellent idea of the possibilities of casting under the new régime, for Edith Sharpe, as Roger’s mother; Peter Taylor Smith, as his father; Merle Tottenham, as his sister; and William Freshman, as Roger Torrance, were each well placed, and did credit to their respective parts’. Western Daily Press, Tuesday 9 February 1926.
