With true Sahara atmosphere, "The
Garden of Allah," Robert Hitchcns'
novel, dramatized by himself, assisted
by Mary Anderson de Navarro, on
the second visit to Omaha, will come
to the r.randcis theater tonight for an
engagement of three days, with a
matinee Tuesday. The opening cur
tain will disclose the desert just be
fore dawn, when a caravan of Arabs,
Kabyles and Mozabitcs, with camels,
dogs, horses, donkeys and goats pass
by. The play proper begins on the
veranda of the Hotel de Ucsert.
Hither has come beautiful Domini
Entilden in quest of peace. To the
same place has also come Boris An
drovsky, a Trappist monk, in search
of freedom and worldy happiness.
From the desert the audience is taken
to a street in Beni-Mora, with music
of the tinkling Arabian variety and
much street lighting. Next coines the
garden of Count Anteoni. It is here
that Boris forgets everything and
tells Domino of his love for her. Four
months have elapsed when the next
curtain rises disclosing Domini and
Boris, now man and wife, spending
their honeymoon on the desert. Hut
it is Boris' fate that to this place
should come Count Anteoni and
Father Roubier, who have become
lost in the storm. And they wring
from the unhappy Boris a confession
of who he is. The desert at night is
the next scene and it is here that
Boris acquaints Domini with the true
story of his past. Next comes the
Trappist monastery at El Largani, at
the gate of which Domini and Boris
part and she goes to seek comfort
and peace without him.
Sarah Truax will be seen in the
part of Domini Entilden, William Jef
frey as Boris Androvsky, Howard
Gould as Count Anteoni and Albert
Andruss as Father Roubier. Others in
the company includes James Mason as
Captain de Trevignac, Leo de Valery
as Batouch and Pearl Cray as Su
zanne. May Robson is coming to tbe Bran
deis next Thursday for an engage
ment of four days in a new play by
James Forbes, the author of "The
Chorus Lady," "The Traveling Sales
man," entitled 'The Making Over of
Mrs. Matt." Miss Robson played here
in this piece last season and was very
well received by many who will be
glad of an opportunity to again see
the very delightful comedy. The com
pany in support of Miss Robson is
the same, among the members being
Miss Marie ePavey, who has a char
acter role that gets many good laughs.
Henry Miller's "Daddy Long-Legs"
is coming to the Brandeis theater for
an engagement of four days, starting
Sunday, February 11.
One of the surprises of a show re
plete and overflowing with surprises
is a masked young woman, who ap
pears in the initial act of the latest
Gus Hill creation, "Gus Hill's Fol
lies," which is to be at the attraction
at the Boyd theater today for four
days. The identity of this young
woman is a secret. Not even Mr.
Hill himself knows her name. She
came to him one day as an applicant
for a position. She insisted that she
must wear a mask throughout the
performance. Mr. Hisl devised a
situation to meet her demands. At
the opening of the Follies, a woman
conies forward and announces to the
audience the various features, that
follow in rapid sequence. The new
offering is a combination of farce,
extravaganza, musical comedy, sa
tire, drama, travesty and opera
blended in such a manner so as to
meet the taste of the most sensitive
palate. The cast is a large one and
the action spirited from curtain to
curtain. Matinee as usual today and
A youthful couple are the central
figures in the story of "Her Unborn
Child," which will be the attraction
at the Boyd theater for the entire
week except Saturday night, com
mencing next Sunday. The Sunday
matinee will be reserved exclusively
for the ladies.

They offer a skit with many songs.

ported by a capable company, will
present the play. Billed as surpris
