Post-War Vienna Will Be Scene
Of Deutscher Vereiii Production
Gay, laughing Vienna, the post-war
Vienna of story book and travel cat-'
alogues, is the setting of this year's
German play, "Das Konzert," which
will be presented by Deutscher Verein
at 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 25, in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Gustov Heink, the hero of the play
is a famous Viennese pianist, sur-
rounded by a large number of women
students as interested in their teacher
as they are in music.
Heink frequently becomes in-
volved in serious complications and
has to depend on his very intelli-
gent wife to steer him out of trouble.
The role of Heink will be played by
Arthur Klein, '39, and Emma Hirsch,
'39, will take the part of Frau Heink.
The play was written by Hermann
Bahr. The plot which resembles Noel
Coward's "Private Lives" while it
avoids its cynicism, has a moral.
Heink is taught by an amusing in-
trigue that other persons besides
himself must be considered.
Before the World War the Deut-
scher Verein was a very active organ-
ization. The members of the club
presented a number of plays which
were not only presented in Ann Arbor
but also in Detroit, Ypsilanti and
During the war, however, the anti-
'German sentiment caused the organ-
ization to cease its activity. Three
years ago the Deutseher Verein re-
This year the play is being directed
by Prof. Otto Graf of the German
department. The other leading roles
will be played by Ethel Winnai, '41,
and Rolf Weil, '40, who will portray
the roles of Doctor and Frau Jura;
and Lola Boigimeister, '41, will play
Miss Gerndl, the vamp.
