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

The Abbot C i r c I 19 3 1 Senior Middle Plays " THE FEAST OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS " Bv Samuel M. Illsley On January the twentieth the Senior-Mid class presented three plays. " The Feast of the Holy Innocents " gives the audience a peep into the lives of two very pious middle-aged sisters. They want to go to the city to enjoy themselves but are afraid to tell each other so. Therefore they say that thev would like to attend the " Feast of the Holy Innocents " to be held at the citv church. They really can ' t make up their minds for thev can ' t afford it, when Mrs. Oberlv comes in, a typical country woman, and lends them the money. Even then they are in doubt but the sudden arrival of Mrs. Oman their citv friend, who insists that thev go back with her, puts an end to their worries and off they go. The parts were well acted and the play was very interesting. CHARACTERS Cornelia Milk Electa Milk . Mrs. Oman Mrs. Oberly Jenny. Helen Allen Dorothy Reinhart Ruth Tyler Dorothy Richardson Hilda L nde " THE LONDONDERRY AIR " Bv Rachel Field " The Londonderry Air " is a simple love story of a little country hired-out girl and a traveling peddler who plays the fiddle very well. The maiden, Rose-Martha, is betrothed to a slow, easy-going farmer boy, Hiram, who takes her very much for granted. She is working for the widow Boggs, Hiram ' s mother. She and her son have gone to a funeral and during their absence the peddler comes to the door, begs some of the cookies from Rose-Martha that she ' s cooking, and a pretty and sweet love scene follows which is interrupted by the widow and Hiram. Rose-Martha is to join the peddler when she hears his fiddle in the fields that night if she has decided to marry him. She tries to forget but her young heart craves love and she can ' t resist when she finally hears his fiddle so, casting cares to the wind she goes out into the twilight to him. CHARACTERS Rose-Martha The Peddler Widow Boggs Hiram 92 Katherine Cook Virginia Arnold Virginia Lawton Eunice Randall
