[Starring] Margaret Rawlings and Henry Oscar

Margaret Rawlings is one of the most gifted of London's younger actresses. While she was still at Lady Margaret Hall she appeared with John Masefield's Company at the Little Theatre in Oxford. She made her professional debut in 1927 with Charles Macdonald Shaw repertory company as Jennifer in "The Doctor's Dilemma", and subsequently played in "The Philanderer", "Arms and the Man", "You Never Can Tell", and "The Dark Lady of the Sonnets". London first saw her in 1929 when she played the part of Louise in "Jordan" at the Strand Theatre. One of her greatest creations, perhaps, has been the role of Katherine O'Shea in "Parnell". Henry Oscar, who has been seen by viewers on previous occasions, is a fine actor who made his debut in Shakespeare with the Benson Company as Snug in "A Midsummer Night's Dream".
