The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Mentor Jffltbtrle $lap£ Pierrot ' s! Jfflotfjer On Tuesday evening, January 18th, the Senior-Middlers presented, in honor of the Senior class, three one-act plays. As usual, Mrs. Gray ' s choice of plays was well made. The first play Pierrot ' s Mother by Glenn Hughes, as its title suggests, is a quaint fantastic sketch, giving us a glimpse in the candlelit hours, of a misunder- stood Pierrot and Pierrette who wander apart in search of ginger-cakes and feather-beds in which to sink their heavy hearts. Fortunately for them, they both wander, quite unknowingly, to the same house for shelter. Pierrot ' s mother reads between the lines, and the curtain drops with Pierrot and Pierrette happy once more, and setting off to cheer the world with their song and dance. Elizabeth Jackson, the mother, made us all wish we could have her tuck us into a feather bed and feed us ginger-cakes and tea. Pierrot, played by Christine Bliss, was so charming a figure, that we could hardly understand his dear Pier- rette ' s falling out with him. Pierrette, played by Dorothea Dow, was a half- fairy-like creature who realized our imaginary ideal of Pierrette most delightfully. The Cast: Pierrot Christine Bliss Pierrette Dorothea Dow Pierrot ' s mother . . . Elizabeth Jackson 89

T h Abbot C i r c I 19 2 7 all concerned, Phoebe Throssell becomes Phoebe Brown and they all live happily on. Ruth Harvey, portrayed Phoebe of the ringlets, Phoebe the school marm, and Miss Livvy the flirt, with equal distinction. She was adorable as Phoebe; weary- hearted as the mistress; a vivacious flirt as Livvy. It is hard to say which Phoebe was best played. Ruth proved her skill by sustaining throughout the play, the true Phoebe at heart. Susan, played by Persis Goodnow, captured our hearts quite as much as Phoebe. We loved her confusion and quick exits when perplex- ing problems faced her, and her conscienceless stories toward the end of the deception to protect her Phoebe. A very fine performance, Persis! Ah! That Valentine Brown — The dashing Mr. Brown. We congratulate Ruth Nason on conquering a difficult piece of characterization. She was one of the most successful " men " we have ever seen on Abbot ' s stage. And as for the Misses Willoughby and Turnbull, they were perfect as the old maids. Mrs. Gray, with her record of successful productions, enabled the Seniors, through her tireless coaching, to present a thoroughly enjoyable play presented in a thoroughly enjoyable way.

The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 Mite Citation The second play, Miss Civilization by Richard Harding Davis, proved to be a modern comedy which kept us shivering with thrills and shaking with laughter. In order to keep her invalid mother from having a shock, and three burglars from escaping with loot stolen from her house, Alice Gardner, an at- tractive young girl, known to us as Jean Swihart, entertains three uninvited ruffian guests until the police arrive and arrest them. The burglars were not the sort of men you would like to meet on a lonely road. They were played with much dash and color by Josephine Paret, Virginia Gay and Katherine Willauer. We were so sorry when the play was over! The Cast: Alice Hatch . Harry . Reddy . Captain Lucas Two Engineers Two Policemen Jean Swihart Katherine Willauer Josephine Paret Virginia Gay Mary Alice Mcintosh fTheodora Talcott Marian Smith j Helen Leavitt I Elizabeth Small 90
