The Abbot Circle 1922 " Joint ( toners in £ pain " By Alice Brown Perhaps this play has solved the problem which arises with the occasional misunderstanding with one ' s room-mate. Miss Dyer and Mrs. Blair at least solved it for themselves and they had the reputation of being the worst persons to room with in the old ladies ' home. The scene is laid in a bedroom of the home and at the opening of the play Emily Holt as Mrs. Fullerton is moving her things from the room with the aid of Mrs. Mitchell, the manager of the home. Miss Dyer is seated on the other side of the room and it is hard to believe that this complaining old lady could be Esther Wood. At the entrance of Mrs. Blair, Miss Dyer ' s new room-mate, we are quite breathless to see what the outcome of this new combination will be, for Mrs. Blair has a most violent disposition. At first the two old ladies are in a state of continual warfare, but finally Dorothy King, who plays the part of Mrs. Blair, thinks of a plan. They mark a chalk- line exactly through the center of the room. One-half is to be Miss Dyer ' s home and the other, Mrs. Blair ' s. If one wishes to speak with the other she must go over to her home and knock at the door to obtain admission. We find that the plan works excellently and that through this little game all their troubles are soon ended. 65

" g tx Wfa m Wiih m lentils; Potl " Come! come through the portals of once-upon-a-time. Wonderful things you will find there, cities and gardens and fairies and queens; all true things that you loved and believed before you grew up and began to doubt. See, here is a winsome little boy as only " Nip " Page could make, sitting by a black pot boiling lentils. What was that cry? Oh, it is Helga Lundin as the beautiful queen greatly distressed. She is going to be decapitated because of a breach of etiquette. If only she could hide, she cries, until after the king ' s four clocks struck twelve she would be safe. The little boy hides the queen quickly for they hear someone coming. It is Libby Thompson as a strolling juggler in a striped coat, with three golden balls in his hands. She is very elusive and makes us think the juggler really truly magic. He goes his way and after him comes a little milkmaid with her pail on her arm. Dorothy Upton makes such a lovable little maid and she tells the little boy that there is a pot of gold and a pair of finger-rings offered to anyone who finds the escaped queen. After the milkmaid comes a groping old blind man whom Dolores Osborne makes very real to us. He shows the little boy how the blind can see. After the blind man comes Charlotte Hudson as a gay, dancing ballad singer. She sings to the little boy in return for some of his lentils. The truly dreadful headsman who enters is Libby Flagg, so dark and grim that we shudder. The little boy is terribly frightened and tries to make the headsman go away. But he will not. Just then three of the clocks of the king begin to strike twelve. But he is going to behead the queen yet. Just then he stops to sneeze, and the last clock has struck. The queen is saved! With Emily Van Patten, who is Memory, Ethel Goodwin as the Prologue, and Estelle Throckmorton representing " we " in the audience, we travel back by the paths of memory through the portals of once-upon-a-time.

The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 " ftfje roobe " By George Middleton Sara had stayed at home with her mother while Connie, her younger sister, went to college. Now Connie had graduated and was home and Sara thought that she, at last, would be able to go away from it all, for she felt that she was getting into a groove and she had set her heart on being a nurse. But matters weren ' t just as she had expecte:! to find them, for her attractive young sister Connie had fallen victim to Cupid ' s arrow and it seems that her beloved Paul was going to Brazil within two months. He was most anxious to take Connie with him — and who could blame him for wanting such an attractive girl as Ruth Holmes made? But one of them had to stay with their mother. One must give up her heart ' s desire, and each unselfishly offered to do it. But Sara finally persuaded her younger sister that it was only right for her to go with Paul. Annetta Richards as Sara .made us feel with her how great this sacrifice really was and how little happiness the future held for her. ENGLISH V PLAYS " Jfflargot ' s little affair " By Mary Elizabeth Polk Margot Smythe, a very modern flapper, is " dragged " home by an hysterical mother, a furious father, and a cynical brother because she has turned a perfectly proper dance into a shocking and disgraceful affair by leaving " Steve " in the middle of the floor and dancing with a " common Italian saxophonist " , thereby lessening her mother ' s chances of social success and her brother ' s chances, which depend on " Steve " , of business success. Margot, merely having " expressed " herself, thoroughly enjoys her family ' s scoldings and threats. In fact, she con- siders the situation quite dramatic and further shocks the family by announcing her intention to marry the notorious Guido. She admits that he knows nothing of the plan, but is perfectly confident that he will force her to marry him. At the crucial moment of her startling announcement, a very furious and rumpled Guido enters, demanding " that w ' at ees hees " . Margot, seeing in him a very different person from her late dancing partner, changes her mind much to the 66
