Her rendering of this Greek play was very fine indeed. No! point was missed and the whole] setting of the tragic story was clearly represented. Miss Spinney gave an excellent introduction j telling some part of the "Tale of j Troy Divine" and Helen's perfidy to explain clearly Iphigenia's position in the savage temple of j Taurus.
