THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Drama Group
Peveals Title
Of Furth Play
'Trelawney Of The Wells'
Is First Presentation
Of Second Semester
Play Production's fourth presenta-
tion of the current year will be "Tre-
lawny of the Wells," by Arthur Wing
Pinero, Prof. Valentine B. Windt, di-
rector of the drama group, an-
nounced yesterday. The play will run
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Wednes-
day through Saturday, February 26
to March 1.
The story is of theatrical folk in
the middle of the 19th century, Pro-
fessor Windt added, and is an ex-
tremely good comedy. It is still of
contemporary interest, he added,
since the characters are real and
amusing.
I Although the play was written in
1892, the scene is laid in 1863 and
allows for the use of more elaborate
costumes than have heretofore been
employed this year. Emma Hirsch is
designing the costumes.
Pinero, the author, was one of the
most important playwrights of the
19th century, and "Trelawny of the
Wells" is one of his best works. Pro-
fessor Windt revealed that one rea-
son for the choice of this as the
group's costume presentation this
year was its fine representation of
the 19th century theatre.
The names in the title refer to
Rose Trelawny, actress, who is the
play's heroine, and to the Wells The-
atre, scene of her appearances.
Previous offerings of Play Produc-
tion have been "Three Men on a
Horse," by George Abbott and John
Cecil Holm, "The Bat," by Avery
Hopwood and Mary Roberts Rinehart,
and "Margin for Error," by Clare
Boothe.
