The Spike or Victoria University College Review, June 1927

Dramatic Club

Dramatic Club

Since the last appearance of the "Spike" the Dramatic Club, which was then showing signs of renewed life, has once again firmly established itself as an active College Club. We have an increased membership; readings are being held with reasonable regularity, and, in general, everything is, if not rosy, an unmistakable and encouraging pink.

Two plays were read during the first term—"If" by Lord Dunsany and "Quality Street" by Sir J. M. Barrie. Both readings were extremely successful and the attendance of members was particularly good.

Our first public performance for some years will take place in the Town Hall Concert Chamber on June 17th and 18th, when the Society will produce A. A. Milne's clever and amusing comedy, "To have the Honour." The cast includes the following:—

Misses R. Bullen, M. Cooley, D. Hadfield, E. Purdie, and M. Watson, and Messrs. D. Edwards, R. J. Mayne, R. E. Pope, D. Priestly and A. Watson.

Rehearsals are proceeding under the very capable direction of Mrs. John Hannah, and everything promises well for a most enjoyable entertainment.

We have a fairly full programme of readings for the remainder of the year. We have still two sets of plays unread:— Ashley Duke's "The Man with a Load of Mischief" and "Shakespeare" by Rubenstein and Bax. A One-Act Play Evening and a Shakespearean Evening have also been mooted. All we need for a very successful year is the enthusiastic cooperation of every member.
