Is Marriage a Failure?

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

This week Stuart Robson completes his engagement at the Tremont with the presentation of A. D. Gordon's new American comedy in three acts, "Is Marriage a failure?" It is an effective protest against illti-med interference by father-in-law and mother-in-law in the domestic economies of young married life. The comedy abounds in the heartiest kind of fun. The pathos is all in one scene, when Mr. Robson writes a manly letter of farewell to his young wife, whose overdose of father and mother has brought about a senseless and cruel separation. Again Mr. Robson shows his versatility wins "the tribute of a falling tear." Throughout, his treatment of the grave question is characteristic; if he does not succeed in solving it, he at least makes a very entertaing and amusing attempt. There will be an extra matinee of this play on Christmas Day.
