Pines is in the center of a pretty
big circle that offers no stage
productions. It has a wide terri
tory to draw from. Judging from
Wednesday night’s turn-out, the
people want to see actors in the
flesh occasionally. Road compan
ies are en tour these days. Why
not entice a few of them here,
to vary the fare offered the Car
olina Theatre patrons?
Wednesday’s play was the of
fering of the Federal Theatre
Touring Company, Unit No, 1,
the first road company of the
National Federal Theatre Pro
ject, recently organized by Uncle
Sam to take care of the numer
ous unemployed actors and ac
tresses of the country and to
“bring the theatre to the peo
ple.” A splendid cast enacted the
comedy drama, “Post Road,”
which was written by a native of
this state, Wilbur Daniel Steele,
and which ran on Broadway with
