At the end of March, St. Mary's College Drama presented an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost. Some plays are written for instruction as a portent or a harbinger of terrible things to come. They are tragedies. Some plays are written for instruction against mistakes and mishaps but never mere misfortunes. They are comedies. Such a play is The Canterville Ghost.  It is, in all manners of appearances, seeped in American know-how and elbow-grease with a spread of good English mustard. But behind this is thickly veiled a virtue, which shall not be mentioned least--for morals are best left like phantoms, to be happened upon as if by chance.
