The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Dramatic Club

Dramatic Club

During the "past twelve months," the Dramatic Club has been functioning as dramatic clubs are wont to do.

The major production of the period was Till the Day I Die" by Clifford Odets, the famous play on Nazi Germany which was banned by embryo Australian fascists when it was presented in Sydney. The play was presented on two evenings in the V.U.C. Gymnasium, to crowded houses. A large number of trade unions and educational bodies were circularised prior to the presentation of the play, and the response was most gratifying.

The play was produced by Dorothea Tossman.

Earlier in the year an evening of one-act plays was presented—"Wurzel-Flummery" by A. A. Milne, "Weatherwise" by Noel Coward, and "And So To War" by J. Corrie. The producers were J. Aimers, P. Macaskill, and Dorothea Tossman respectively.

Several readings have also been held, notably "Murder on the Second Floor," by Frank Vosper.

During the year the Dramatic Club has been a leading contributor to the Building Fund.

That seems about all.
