Entertainment Review
This article presents information related to several theatrical productions. The drama "The Death of Odysseus," is written by Lionel Abel. It is been considered as the best writing of the season so far; a more than competent production. The drama "Life is a Dream by Calderan, and other plays Classics presented by what is held to be a major Spanish company; which could only prove that the Spanish theatre is now the worst in Europe. Another drama "Escapade," is written by Roger MacDougall. Melville Cooper and Roddy McDowaIl make a heroic effort to rescue the evening from the limp hands of author, director.
