The Abbot Circle 1927 Qaualitp Street Sir James Barrie must have been thinking of Abbot when he wrote Quality Street, the play which the Class of '27 presented as its Senior play. The play is perfectly suited for girls, acting of both men's and ladies' parts, and those particu- lar parts seemed to be conceived just for the girls who played them. The play is of some very sweet ladies who lived on the most genteel street of the town, at the time of the Napoleonic wars. It is Susan Throssell's ambition to have her adored younger sister, Phoebe of the ringlets, wear the wedding dress which Susan made in high hopes for her own wedding, but which never was used. Valentine Brown, the man of Phoebe's heart, enlists for nine-years' service in the army, thinking that it will thrill the sisters. He calls to tell his "great secret" and bid them farewell. Unfortunately, the sisters have guessed that this secret is that he loved Phoebe, and, in short, he is going to propose. Valentine, however, unaware of Phoebe's love for him, and of the heartbreak which he has caused, takes his leave. As the sisters' money, invested because of Valentine's advice, has been lost, they open a small school for genteel children only. We find, to our dismay, nine years later that Phoebe has become old and weary. Valentine Brown, now Captain Brown, returns in hopes of taking the sisters to the ball. Saddened by Phoebe's age, and, of course, thinking that she would not care to go to the ball, he leaves the house. Phoebe, weary of being prim, dons a party dress, holds a ball of her own in the school room, when - Brown returns. As Valentine does not recognize her, she introduces herself as her own mythical niece. Valentine, having fallen for her charms, whisks her away to the ball. While Phoebe, or rather "Livvy", arouses "frenzy in the breasts of all the males," Valentine discovers, in watching Livvy, that he has been in love all these nine years with Phoebe, who is so lovely, a "modest violet" in comparison with this Haunting flower, "Livvy", and sternly informs Phoebe of his discovery. Weary of this deception, Phoebe hides "Livvy" in the bed-room on pretense of being ill. Because of the watching of the neighbors, "Livvy" seems to be a fixture, for they cannot send her home. Valentine, to the amazement of the sisters, who think that he does not guess that Phoebe and "Livvy" are one, re- moves "Livvy" by packing a dummy in his carriage with the maid to deceive the watchers across the street - so, " gets rid of 'Livvy'."
