The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Senior Play THE PROFESSOR ' S LOVE STORY " By J. M. Barrie This love story was made unusually interesting by our two great actresses Miss Clement Cruce, who played the part of Professor Tom Goodwillie, and Miss Audrie Griffiths, who played the part of Lucy White, his secretary. Flora Collins played the part of Dr. Cousens and deserves honorable mention. Being the professor ' s friend and realizing that the professor is in love with Miss White, the doctor advises Goodwillie to leave his work and visit his sister at Tullochmaines. Contrary to all expectations, the professor leaves — with Miss White at his side. Many serious and amusing situa- tions follow before the professor finally realizes his love for Lucy. The second act opens in the picturesque wheat-fields at Tullochmaines. Evelvn Folk plaved the part of Miss Goodwillie who has been disappointed in love, and therefore tries to keep her brother from realizing his love. The Dowager, played by Harriet Gregory, imparts to Lucy a brilliant idea of hers to make the professor fall in love with her. Up to this point Lucy has not tried to make the professor declare his love for her, but now she decides to take the dowager ' s idea. The humorous side of the play was brought out bv Dorothy Stevenson, who was Effie, the professor ' s competent maid. Abby Castle as Pete, and Faith Chipman as Henders were Effie ' s two lovers. Marie Whitehill as Sir George, the Dowager ' s stepson, and Dorothy Welch as Lady Gilding, his wife, were also amusing characters. 89

The Abbot Circle 19 3 1 Abbot Dramatic Society Plays THE BOY COMES HOME On December tenth the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two plays. " The Boy Comes Home " by A. A. Milne was a delightful comedy. Philip, the boy, returns from the war and immediately the action begins. He put the maid and red-haired, fiery- tempered cook right in their places by a few sharp words tinged with humor. He loves his sweet gentle aunt but fears his uncle with whom he must soon discuss his plans for the future. The uncle, after repeated pleadings from his wife not to be too harsh on the boy who may have a will of his own, falls asleep and dreams that his nephew comes in, listens to his plans and refuses to obey them. Uncle James tries to scare him into obey- ing but is finally made to submit to Philip at the point of a revolver. Still shaking and white from his nearness to death James wakes up only to find that it was a dream and that Philip is just entering the room after breakfasting and is quite meek and delighted to enter business with him. The play was well acted and contained many humorous situations. CHARACTERS Uncle James Aunt Emily Philip Mary (Parlour Maid) Mrs. Higgins (Cook) Flora Collins Audrie Griffiths Clement Cruce Linda Rollins Mary Angus THE WEDDING PRESENT By William Carson Bob Gordon, and his wife, Dot, have very recently returned from their honeymoon and when the scene opens they are trying to decide what Jim Dixon, a friend who is coming for dinner, gave them as a Wedding Present. Dot has lost the list on which she had written the people ' s names. She insists that he gave them a Corot that she has taken a fancy to and Bob is sure he gave them the fireless cooker. Many complications occur which are extremely funny and in the end Jim confesses that he got his sister to buy the present and so doesn ' t know himself what he gave them. It turns out to be an ugly cut glass dish which they all dislike. CHARACTERS Bob Gordon Dot Gordon James Dixon Mariette Whittemore Dorothy Stevenson Metta Bettclx 91
