The Abbot Circle 19 3 Senior Middle Plays " THE FLITCH OF BACON " On Januarv rhe twenty-first the Senior-Mid class presented two plavs. ' " The Flitch of Bacon " is the story of a bachelor who promises a flitch of bacon to the married couple who can live together without quarreling for a year. He does not be- lieve such a thing is possible, until a timid, loving couple come to his home to demand the bacon. After trying very hard he finally makes them quarrel, but he discovers that it is better to have quarreled and made up than never to have quarreled at all. The dialect and the costumes were both very quaint and pretty. CAST OF CHARACTERS A Country Squire . Dick, his nephew Lucan, an old retainer Adam, a voung husband Susan, a young wife Jack Comrades of rhe Hal Richfield hunt. Clement Cruce Mary Bacon Flora Collins Faith Chipman Gretchen Sawyer Linda Rollins Frances Scudder •RICH MAN, POOR MAN " ' " Rich Man, Poor Man " is a charming scene at a rummage sale. Emma is in charge. Peter, her lover, comes to ask for her hand, but she hides him behind a screen when she hears a customer approaching. All the customers demand something which is not in sight; but Peter sends each one away content by handing over the screen to Emma just what thev ask for. After the screen itself has been taken, Peter comes forth wrapped in a blanket. The play is indeed very funny and of course Emma accepts Peter. CAST OF CHARACTERS Emma .... Kitty .... Peter ....

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
