The Abbot Circle 1925
The winnher Eat
A walk through a park bordered with swaying palm trees. Such was the
setting. Harlequin and Pierrot sauntered in engaged with discussing Columbine.
VVe were very much surprised to learn that even though all the poets have depicted
Pierrot as being desperately in love with Columbine, he actually disliked her.
Harlequin is the one who really adores her. They strolled off, and Punchinello,
the old pedlar, came along crying out his wares. Columbine and her maid,
Margot, happened to be walking in the park too. Columbine always hoped that
she might see her beloved Harlequin. Suddenly they became aware of Punchin-
ello, raving about his charms to attract love, and immediately the girl is interested.
She tried on the magic slipper which had the power of making everyone love its
wearer, and when Punchinello, having succumbed to the charm, began making
love to her, she fied frightened, taking the slipper with her.
A While Punchinello was bewailing the loss of his slipper, Harlequin passed by
and became interested in the wonder hat which made its wearer invisible. He put
it on his head and of course became invisible to the pedlar. After crying loudly
for his hat, poor Punchinello went off in search of his slipper. Margot and
Columbine appeared again, and unaware of Harlequin's presence, they discussed
the slipper. Suddenly Pierrot came and fell in love with her. The two girls
amused themselves by tossing the slipper back and forth and watching Pierrot
adore first one and then the other. Finally Harlequin couldn't stand this any
longer, but lo and behold when he tried to pull off his hat it stuck. He cried out
his plight to the astonished listeners. just then Punchinello came and demanded
his hat and slipper. There ensued an argument between the golden-haired Colom-
bine and proud Harlequin over who should give up his gift first. Finally they
settled it by taking them off at the same time, and the play ended happily.
