If anyone was still in ’ doubt , at that late date , about’ the expediency of amateur groups presenting the difficult plays of Ibsen , Friday night’s production should have been conclusive proof to the contrary . One can appreciate the works of , an artist without being able to give ‘ visual manifestation of the fact . ‘ Too Often , appreciation Is confused with interpretative ability and a travesty occurs to the misfortune of ‘ both players and audience . ‘ ‘ To attempt Ibsen , ’ Is to’ immediate ly place one ’ s ’ self on th ’ e def ensive , A thorough knowledge ’ and understandIng of the subtleties of his plays is necessary , ’ plus skilled actors who can not only’ follow the director ’ s _instruCtions , but who ‘ can add through their acting t...
