"The Neighbours," an interesting playlet portraying small town
characters, was the second of the two plays presented by the winter
class of '31,
Mrs. Ellsworth. one of the women of the neighbourhood, gets a
wire from the East that her sister has died, leaving an orphan boy
whom they are sending to her. It is not long before the news has spread
from house to house in the neighbourhood. Mrs. Abel suggests that
they give Mrs. Ellsworth a surprise. All agree that this is a fine idea,
for Mrs. Ellsworth, whose chief source of income is a pension of thirty
dollars per month for her husbands lost leg, does not have enough
money to support the child. Peter, a shy country boy, very much in
love with Inez, the daughter of Mrs. Abel, and Ezra also aid in the
Mrs. Trot, another neighbour, volunteers to make the ice cream
and Mrs. Moran the cake, while the rest go about the neighbourhood
getting old clothes. When all is about ready, Mrs, Ellsworth arrives
to spread the news that the boy is not coming, that he is to be left with
some of his fathers' people. In the meantime Peter "spills the beans"
about the surprise, not knowing Mrs. Ellsworth is present.
Miss Mayhew directed the play.
