The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1929
The activities of the Dramatic Club have necessarily been restricted during the early part of this year, owing to the participation of most of its members in the Extravaganza. One evening was, however, given to the reading of two one-act plays-"Catherine Parr," by Maurice Baring, and "St. Simeon Stylites," by Sladen Smith. "Claude," a short play by Herman Ould, and "Yellow Sands," a comedy by Eden Philpotts, have also been read recently. The Club has now a modest library of plays, to which it is hoped to add during the coming year. Regular readings will be held henceforward, and some enoyable evenings should be spent in reading the excellent plays which are in hand. Encouraged by the success of the last two plays produced, "To Have the Honour" and "Cousin Kate," the Club has decided to produce another play this year. A number of plays are under consideration, and the choice will be announced shortly. It is to be hoped that people who took part in dramatic work for the first time during the "Xtrav." will keep up their interest in drama through the medium of this Club.
