The Abbot Circle 19 3 Senior Play " THE TAMING OF THE SHREW " " The Taming of the Shrew " ! the title tells the story. Have we not all read this famous comedy of Shakespeare? There is Katherina, the curst, who is not to be subdued until the clever Petruchio woos and weds her in a week. He carries her off to his country home and there by scolding and fuming at the servants, scaring and giving Kate no rest, he thoroughly subdues her. Their last argument is on the road to her father ' s home when there is an argument as to whether the sun or moon is shining brightly and here Petruchio permanently fixes his superiority over Kate. At the banquet scene he shows how he has turned her into an obedient and loving wife. " A lusty wench, " said Petruchio when he laid eyes on the red-headed, fiery-eyed, bad-tempered Kate, who was so well personified by Pat Brewer. Barbara Lamson as Petruchio made a gallant, smiling but rough tamer. When these two burning fires met, they consumed and formed one. Lucile Leavitt played the part of Baptista, a dignified, all-commanding father, unable to manage his own daughter, Katherina. Bianca, his other daughter, was as gentle and sweet as the other was proud and cross. Bianca was apparently the more approachable of the two sisters, but her father would not let her marry until Kate had a husband. Among Bianca ' s suitors were: Kathie as Lucentio, who finally won her hand, Janice as Tranio, Lucentio ' s servant who changed clothes with his master and put on all the airs and graces and Connie as Hortensio and Gay as Gremio were both very humorous characters. The servants ran around in a bewildered fashion, adding color and life to the play. Occasionally there was music which likewise helped the atmosphere. The Senior Class is to be congratulated on its splendid interpretation of " The Taming of the Shrew " . We feel sure that they did justice to it under the steady, whole- hearted coaching which Mrs. Gray gave them. 89

The Abbot Circle 19 3 Abbot Dramatic Society Plays " OVERTONES " On December the tenth, the Abbot Dramatic Society presented " Overtones " , a verv weird play. Four people are on the stage of which only two are real; the other two are their inner selves who show the real attitudes of the two women towards each other. The two real selves always act politely and sweetly towards each other; while their inner selves, unnoticed by the real selves, say sharp words and light con- tinually. Each woman is jealous of the other. Margaret came for Hettie ' s gold but Hettie wants to win Margaret ' s husband. The play was very funny and immensely enjoyed. CAST OF CHARACTERS Harriet, a cultured woman Audrie Griffiths Hettie, her primitive self Elizabeth Brewer Margaret, a cultured woman Louise Atkinson Maggie, her primitive self Christine Hollands Scene: Harriet ' s Living Room Time: The Present " FIAT LUX " (LET THERE BE LIGHT) The other production, " Fiat Lux " was entirely different from " Overtones " and a difficult play to put over, although the actors did put it over. Azariah has lost all faith, because he believes that God has purposely taken away his children. He refused admittance to the carol singers. Nothing his friend, Father Ambrose, says can bring back his faith. Then he imagines that he sees his son, the soldier, and later his little, lame daughter enter, speak to him and leave happily for the help and shelter he has given to them. His old faith returns and he calls in the carol singers and they make merry on Christmas day. CAST OF CHARACTERS Azari ' m Barbara Lamson Father Ambrose .... Cornelia Gould Nellie Elizabeth Quinhv Soldier Janice Lovell The Waits Helen Simpson, Helen Ripley, Elizabeth Dean, Kathie Fellows, Marianne Hirst Scene: Azariah ' s House Time: Christmas Eve. 91
