Humour


The theatre in its relation to the life of the Empire. Effects of the war on the theatre in England. Our greatest heritage of language. Some comments on "movie talk." Sending over good actors with the best companies to play the English classics for the young Canadian people as one of the greatest things the stage can do, and one of the greatest things the Mother Country can do for Canada. Messages of manners and customs that can be handed down through the theatre. Benefits of the theatre for those children who go on the stage. The speaker's desire to try his best to send out about six companies a year to Canada with the best actors possible. The extraordinary fact that part of the world does not think the British have a sense of humour. Some personal anecdotes to the contrary. The speaker concludes with three amusing stores which would bind the Empire together.
