DRAMATICS 107 Prunella, or Love in a Dutch Garden By Laurence Hausman and Granville Barker Prunella is a shy young girl who has been brought up care- fully by three maiden aunts. She is very innocent because she has been sheltered from all contact with the outside world. Pierrot, the leader of a troupe of mummers which has just come to town, sees Prunella one day and falls in love with her. He woos her and finally persuades her to elope with him. She becomes his Pierrette. Not long after their marriage, Pierrette, who really loves Pierrot, finds that he considers her just an episode in his life and that he is too self -centered for true love. He leaves her for a short time, and upon his return discovers that she has left him. Crestfallen, because he realizes that she is not a passing fancy but a true love, he decides to go back to the little Dutch garden where he had first found her. In the meantime, Prunella, who is Pierrette no longer, goes home hoping to find her aunts, but everything has changed and the house is in the hands of a new owner. Homeless, Prunella goes to sleep in the garden underneath the statue of Love. Here, Pierrot, who is the new owner of the Dutch garden, finds her and finally forgets himself in his great love for her.

DRAMATICS 109 Martha ' s Mourning Martha s Mourning by Phoebe Hoffman was a difficult play whose scene was laid in the poor home of a miserly woman and her niece. The lines offered very little relief in humor, but the parts were so well taken that the intensity of the action, subtle as it was, carried it through successfully. " Aunty " was particularly well characterized, and the play never seemed to go beyond her scope as it might have with so many amateurs.. We felt that this more serious piece was a very acceptable prelude to the following play. F D S PLAY CAST Martha Audrie Griffiths Aunty Janice Lovell Neighbor Eleanor Jones Jazz and Minuet A. D. S. chose Jazz and Minuet by Ruth Giorlof f with the audience in mind, as the play offered just the right proportions of modern and old comedy to appeal to us all. The story is of a modern girl ' s rebellious attitude toward her business-bound fiance, and her dream after reading a great aunt ' s diary. The lines fairly dance along with quick wit and feeling, and are a true expression of the modern young woman. The contrast between the old and new costume adds a bit of color and a duel in a modern play pre- sents quite a novelty.
