Victoria College Capping Carnival. Thursday, June 27th, 1912


A farcical, political, extravanganzical, fantastical, topical, nonsensical and calculated-to-tical play evolved round the central theme of "The Fall," being a parody of Shakespeare, Milton, Erckmann-Chatrain, etc., etc.

Perpetrators: P. B. Broad, A. G. Brockett, A. E. Caddick, G. M. Cleghorn, S. Eichelbaum, and F. Hall-Jones.

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
And all the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again."

—Milton's "Paradise Lost."
