Lyric Theatre, Prahran.


The director of the Lyrio Theatre

announces that he has secured the sole rights from the A ustralian Photo Play Company of another wonder ful special attraction for the Lyric ' Theatre, commencing on Monday

night. This is the first real Austra lian drama of the bush ever pro duced, entitled .* Moora-Neeya " *' The Message of the Spear." It is a wonderfully produced photo-play in no less than 41 scenes.

It is acted by a tribe of real Aus tralian blacks, amidst the Queensland bushland the stations and townships

of the far far baok-blooks. A notable feature is the extraordinary Wild Blacks Corrobboree, a grotesque and startling war dance by a whole tribe

of Australian blacks in full war paint.

The other play is a splendidly staged and acted melodrama by the famous Nordisk Company, " The Temptations of a Great Ciry." This subject is a great social, problem drama, and will be presented at the evening performances only and not at next Saturday's matinee. It is a magnificent production and the lesson of the plot, though highly melodramatic, will make a slr >n» appeal to the emotions. Crude melo dramatic ii not usually a feature a; the Lyric, but this is a melodramatic which is, in a class entirely its owo, and is worthy to rank with many of the greatest photo plays yet shown at the Lyric.
