One-Act Plays

One-Act Plays

Great activity has been proceeding in the Dramatic Club campduring the past few weeks. Rehearsal is a herculean task under the conditions that prevail in the gymnasium these days, but the club is confident of putting on one of the brightest three one-act shows in its history this week.

To begin with we have a modern thriller, produced by H. W. Williamson, a play tense and dramatic in the way only thrillers can be. Following will be that uproarious political super-farce, "Where's That Bomb?" produced by Alan Gordon. Burlesque and drama combine in this rather naturalistic perpetration by Roger Gullan and Buckley Roberts. Third on the programme is that most artistic fragment by Richard Hughes, "Danger," which, though short, is unrivalled in its class for sheer beauty of conception and gripping reality. This play will be produced by Miss June Cummins.

The show will run two nights. Thursday and Friday, with the usual Students Night on Friday with supper and dance to follow. But rather than risk not getting a seat on Friday, we advise you to be there on Thursday at 8 p.m. Admission on both nights will be 1/6.
