In 'Blue Bird'
Maeterlincks Fairy Tale
To Be Given Dec. 3-6
Halstead To Direct
Maurice Maeterlinck's fantasy, "The
Blue Bird," will be presented by Play
Production of the Department of
Speech Dec. 3 througW Dec. 6 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre as the
second show of the winter season.
According to Director William P.
Halstead, the play will bear no re-
semblance to the motion picture in
which Shirley Temple played recent-
ly. It s an adult fairy tale, a modern
classic, and the entertainment of
young audiences will be of secondary
The story concerns a little boy and
girl, Tyltyl and Mytyl, who are per-
mitted by the Fairy Berylune to
search for the bluebird, representing
In their quest they visit the Land
of Memory where they meet' their
dead relatives, the Palace of Night
where they search among the secrets
of Nature, a graveyard where they
hunt for the bird among the dead and
in the Land of the Future where
they look among the unborn children.
On their journey they are accom-
panied by the souls of Things and
Animals including Bread. Sugar,
Milk; Water, Light, Fire, Dog and
bat. The representation of these and
also of the Horrors, Terrors, Wars,
Hours and more is an achievenient
not only in the intricate costuming,
but also in the characterizations.
The play was written in 1906 by
the Belgian playwright who is now
a refugee in New York City. Al-
though he wrote the play in five
acts, for the purposes of this pre-
sentation it will be divided into three
parts, each with three scenes
