Agnes Scott’s The Red, Red Rose

An artist (Harry English) is taken by the beautiful and picturesque appearance of Rosa Calumetti (Miss Scott), a street singer, who has long been in love with him, whom she knows only by sight. The singer, to come in closer contact with the artist, feigns a sprained ankle, and succeeds in being invited into his studio. From this time on all action ceases, and the piece becomes merely a dialogue. A little comedy is gotten out of the alleged injured ankle, but not enough to notice. Miss Scott makes a most pleasing stage picture, and is possessed of an amount of personality. She does fairly well with the Italian dialect. Mr. English does not look the part of a man with whom a romantically inclined young lady would fall in love. Most of his lines were spoken with his back to the audience.
Agnes Scott is co-star and author. To judge by this playlet her ability as an actress is superior to that as an author. The great fault lies in the lack of action.
