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.

110 THE ABBOT CIRCLE Einer Muss Heirathen We have all seen comedies in English, and some of us in French, but very few of us had enjoyed a real German " Lustspiel " before last fall. Through the efforts of Miss Baker and the German department we were able to follow the trials and tribulations of Jakob and Wilhelm Zorn in Einer Muss Heirathen by Alexander Wilhelmi. The aunt of these two brothers insists that one of them carry out their dead father ' s wish and marry, so that she will have someone to help her about the house. This order sends the con- firmed bachelors into a frenzy. When they are somewhat calmed it naturally follows that the only fair way to decide the issue is to draw lots. Jakob is the victim and with the aid of Wilhelm starts to court his cousin Luise. However, Wilhelm, in demonstrating the art of love to his brother, succumbs to the charm of Luise. This releases Jakob and makes everyone happy. Even those who were not familiar with the German language were able to enjoy the many amusing scenes of this comedy. The German songs also lent atmosphere to the evening. GERMAN PLAY CAST Jakob Zorn Polly Francis Wilhelm Zorn Despina Plakias Gertrude (their aunt) Mary Eaton Luise (their cousin) Doris Seiler
