The Abbot Circle 19 2 8 Resume of tije ct£ of 1928 I. " The Comedy of Errors " Characters: Fairly young Preps who show a marked tendency towards bash- fulness. The action of this play took place so many years ago that we are fortunate to have a sole survivor in Susan Ripley. The movement at this stage was somewhat slow and full of difficulties which now must not be treated as tragedy but pure comedy. II. " Much Ado About Nothing " Characters: Somewhat cocky Juniors most efficient in telling others what to do. The action of this play was full of hurry and business but strange to say nothing in the end was seen but wiser children trained by many a patient upper classman. The importance of the moment loomed great in the inexperi- enced eye. III. " Measure for Measure " Characters: Somewhat subdued Junior Middlers who are " feeling their oats on the sly. " Now the action picked up a little and steadily yet slowly gained momentum. This act left you with the premonition that great things are to come and this is but an apprenticeship for the actors. IV. " As You Like It " Characters: Sweet and helpful Senior-Middlers always there when you want them and when you don ' t, too. The spirit in this act was superb — always bobbing up in crises and holding out valiantly to the grand finale. This act walked away with some honors but they must not be mentioned in the light of that which is to come. V. " All ' s Well That Ends Well " Characters: Preoccupied Seniors either always beginning something new or finish- ing something old or in the middle of something awfully important (this tends to irritate those critical members of the audience.) The action in this started quite well and even managed to win some favorable comments but as the play continued it took a strange turn almost tempest-like. As the inevitable end drew near a strong bond of loyalty among the actors was the final impression gained by all the audience. Every last ounce of pep and go was put into this last scene of the fifth act to make the grand climax of the play. 31
