A NIGHT OFF.
Comedy Club Working Hard on its
The Comedy Club showed a wise
choice in selecting this piece for their
performance this year. It is a charm-
ing little comedy abounding with
humorous incidents and entertating
conversation which make it a play
just suited to a college audience. The
play itself shows a phase of college
life which though unique is possible
enough to be natural.
An old college professor meets by
chance a traveling showman who
comes to the college town. The pro-
fessor while a student in college had
written a fiery Roman tragedy and
the showman now wishes to present
this. The chief scruple which the
professor has against appearing as a
playwright is that his friends will
find him out. However, his wife,
who is his chief dread is at the sea-
shore and he decides to produce the
play and run the risk of discovery.
To his surprise she returned while he
is in the midst of the preparations.
From that time he has to exert all
his ingenuity to keep his actions con-
cealed from her. How he does this
forms the main plot of the comedy.
A little love affair between another
actor and professor's daughter makes
an interesting minor plot.
11his play was once a favorite one
on the professional stage and has
been played by some veryelebrated
actors. When it was first produced
in 1881, its cast included many who
now are the leading players of the
country. In that first cast were Otis
Skinner, John Drew, James Lewis,
Ada Relan and May Irwin. All of
these were leading characters.
It is a play in which there can be
no particular star. Unlike the plays
of Gillett which the Comedy Club
has produced, this one of Daly
affords to every character an oppor-
tunity to do more than merely ap-
pear upon the stage. The cast is
very well balanced and gives every
performer a responsible part.
The indications are that the per-
formance will be more than' ever, a
social event. Several of the frater-
nities are planing theatre parties and
the usual attendant festivities. The
management is well pleased with the
outlook which points to an unquali-
fled success. A large number of
seats have already been spoken for,
mostly by out of town people.
The proceeds of the play will be
given to several of the various chari-
table organizations of the University.
The ones who receive the benefit
have not yet been selected though it
is probable that the Circle of King's
Daughters will be one of the recip-
ients. None of the receipts will go
to the Athletic Association as has
been the custom in former years.
There has been some talk of taking
a trip if the performance here is a
success. This idea will probably be
given up as the young ladies of the
company are not in favor of it.
Offershave been received inviting
the Club to come to both Chicago and
