"Elektra," the (Iroek tragedy of Eu
ripides, translated by Gilbert Murray,
will be given by the Coburn Players at
the Oliver Theater tomorrow evening.
A novelty of the play Is that tho
scene does not once change during the
entire length of the tragedy. Tho
scene of tho whole play 1b laid In the
Greek mountains of Argoa. The scenic
equipment showing the huge boulders,
the acraggley cypreeB trees and the
panoramic pastures is extremely real
istic. Particular attention has been
Siven the lighting, inasmuch aa tho
radius conies from above as real sun
shine. Shadows are cast which gives
the groupings the effect of being
wrapped with out-of-door atmosphere.
As the result, from the gradual coming
of the morning to tho sot of Bun and
darkness at the close of the drama, is
'n Poetic harmony with the whole auB-
tere beauty of tho play.

role of "Elektra" and Mr. Coburn In
me part of Orestes. Eloktra'a brother
