The Abbot Circle 19 24 | IE 1 - - ' -3 n ■ .» — — W M , . .. ■ : QL )t Jfar ump nntebs All her life Princess Von Yeldern had been kept away from the world in a lonely palace. Her life was an unhappy one. She was destined to marry an old German count, many years her senior, and about whom she cared nothing. One day the princess stopped at a little mountain inn to pass the afternoon quietly and obscurely with her guardian. After she had been sent to bed, she crept down to the veranda to get some air. She met there a young poet who was gazing through a telescope in search of his far away Princess. The two commenced a conversation in which the princess took a great delight since she was never allowed to converse with people in such an unconventional way. The poet told her his secret, that he was madly in love with a princess; a real princess! Every day he saw her in her window in her lonely, isolated palace by gazing through this telescope. The young man, completely ignorant of the identity of his young friend, raved about his princess. Oh! He knows this girl had never known a real true princess as he had. It was very amusing to hear the poet rave, to see the poor astonished girl while the audience knew all the time thai the ideal princess of the poet was only two feet from him. Baroness Von Brack, having discovered that her precious charge was not soundly asleep but missing, came out on the veranda. The Baroness, shocked and terrified, ordered the Princess to go inside and the poet to leave immediately. It was really sad when the two young people were parted for the poet had begun to love the princess for her own sake, and the poor princess had been happy for one of the few times in her life.

The Abbot .Circle 1924 quench his thirst and their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of The Muffin Man, making escape impossible as the entire Walk is awake. Jack meets Sir Peter who recognizes him and presents him to M adame Lachesnais who faints at hearing the name, Jack Sayle. At the beginning of Act II in a monologue by Brooke-Hoskyn to his wife we learn he has written to Lord Otford telling him of Jack ' s visit. Madame learns from her daughter that she is in love with Jack, the son of the Lord Otford Mad- ame loved years ago, and makes her promise to forget him. Lord Otford visits the Admiral in a towering rage. He has received an anonymous letter telling of Jack ' s visit to the Walk on Saturday and of his affair with Marjolaine. Sir Peter leaves Lord Otford sitting in the gazebo where Madame encounters him. The cool conversation terminates in the discovery by Lord Otford that Madame is the Lucy Pryor he loved. Jack Sayle returns disguised as the Eyesore and a charm- ing love scene ensues between Marjolaine and Jack presenting the puzzle as to how they are to be married. Dr. Sternroyd appears at the psychological moment and is persuaded to get them the desired license. At this point the Eyesore angrily throws Sempronius, the precious cat of Mrs. Poskett ' s, into the river for eating his fish. Sir Peter rescues him and Mrs. Poskett falling on his neck loudly acclaims him her " hero " . Act III displays Pomander Walk, at its best, having tea. Sir Peter is prac- tically ignored, Mrs. Poskett in a tearful condition, and even a song from Barbara fails to bring back the customary happiness. Mrs. Poskett, with the help of Jim, " the son of a sea cook, " servant to the Admiral, makes her final attempt to " get her Peter. " She succeeds. Lord Otford returns wishing to see Madame Lachesnais and the reconciliation ends happily with future prospects of their own marriage and that of Marjolaine and Jack. The curtain falls with the announce- ment of the new arrival of Brooke-Hoskyn ' s son.

The Abbot Circle 19 24 ' ®p ' -ffltHL )umb As the curtain slowly rose, we saw before us a laundry, and seated on various chairs, tables, and stools were some of its busy workers. After the first few sentences we knew we were in London. Mrs. Plun, Phyl Yates, told us about the weddin ' s and funerals of all her relations, and the girls talked about their beaus. Soon the conversation turned to Maudie, the poor girl who was working with them. They made fun of her imagination and her shirt. A year or more ago a man had left a shirt there, and Maudie had carefully washed and ironed it each day. While they were talking, Madeleine Howard as Maudie came in. Maudie busied herself with her work and, when asked where she was going on the holiday, and who was going to take her out, had to confess that she had no one. Poor little thing, she was a workhouse orphan, and had never known love and care of any sort. The girls, Celeste and Rose, twitted Maudie about the shirt, and learned that the owner ' s name was Mr ' Orace Germsmith. Maudie wove a tale about him as a fairy prince. The girls refused to believe it, and decided to leave their work for the day. Maudie was left alone, and while working around the laundry, who should come in but our A. D. Estes as Mr ' Orace. After much boasting on the part of the hero, and pleading on that of the heroine, Mr. ' Orace consented to take Maudie out. But she felt that he was ashamed of her. And as her sense of pride would not allow her to accept his invitation, she suddenly refused to go and ' Orace, offended, left. As he went out of the door she sank to the floor in a sobbing heap, all her beautiful hopes dashed to the ground. As the curtain dropped we felt the sense of admiration she had awakened in the hero, but we saw that she could never know of it. 79
