A HEROINE FOR CHARITY: HER DRESSES IN ”MAVOURNEEN”

The greatest interest was aroused a little while ago when it was announced that Miss Lily Elsie, that extremely popular and clever musical-comedy actress, who made such successes in The Merry Widow and other pieces of the kind, was to return to the stage, from which she retired on her marriage. Miss Elsie, who is Mrs. Ian Bullough, is playing the heroine in “Mavourneen,” the light-hearted comedy Sir Herbert Tree arranged to produce at His Majesty’s on Saturday last. Some of the dresses she wears are shown above. She is giving the whole of her salary to the Fund for Disabled Soldiers and Sailors. Her husband is in training with his regiment.
