Westminster School - scene from "The Andria" of Terence, 1845. Creator: Unknown
Westminster School - scene from "The Andria" of Terence, 1845. Public school production of an ancient Roman comedy, Act IV, Scene 11: 'Of the costume...we must speak in the highest terms. All was Greek, and correct. The young Pamphilus wore his chlamys with the grace of an Antinous; while old Simo draped his pallium decorously and classically. The acting was hardly up to the average. We may except the Davus of Mr. Milman, which was roguish and significant enough...the enunciation was as distinct, the parts as perfectly committed to memory as ever...The Epilogue, with its allusions to the railway mania, was taken by the audience in every point...It is curious to see the old fashion of Latin play-acting survive in our own matter-of-fact times, when even the hallowed practice of Latin annotations to editions of the classics has almost disappeared'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.
