Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 13. October 4, 1951


The V.U.C. Little Theatre—now firmly christened—is, of course, a misnomer: it is not a Little Theatre, and it is very doubtful, as yet, if it belongs to Victoria College. But probably no single addition to the buildings of the college establishment since the war has made so great a change to student life in the imprecise field of "cultural activity."

Blasphemous producers have reviled its stage design and equipment; carefree athletes of- Section T have bounced volley-balls on its virgin pinex; an unsteady Drama Club operator in search of a spotlight has already put one foot through its ceiling. Yet—In less than three years—it has seen productions of Aristophanes and Shaw, of Congreve and Goethe, of Cocteau and Anouilh, of Norman Nicholson and Christopher Fry. Certainly it deserves better of college audiences, than that they should try to bum It down.
