'Un Client Serieux,' Third Program
In French Se'rie " . o v repn kI

AL N w M -M I- w %.o - w 04 0 - f w16 olWF MAL, I

"Un Client serieux," a farcical sa-
tire by Georges Courteline, is the
third play in the French program to
be presented at 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
The play holds courtroom proce-
dure up to ridicule. As the play opens
the prosecuting attorney (le substi-
tut) tells the bailiff (l'huissier) that
under the direction of a shyster law-
yer, Barbemolle, a number of news-
papers are conducting a political
campaign against him.
At that moment Lagoupille, the
serious client, is summoned into
court. He is charged with having
given a black eye to Mr. Alfred, a
cafe owner. Barbemolle agrees to

defend Lagoupille for the small fee
of ten francs.
The court then takes up the case
of Alfred vs. Lagoupille. After the
confusion has died down Alfred ex-
plains that he has felt compelled to
expulse Lagoupille from his cafe
charging that he used everything in
the cafe and only drank one drink.
Lagoupille gives him a black eye
(marron) and Alfred claims 500
francs damages. Lagoupille claims
that he has been a faithful patron of
the cafe for five years, that he has
left a fortune in it and that he drank
seven drinks, not just one.
Barbemolle makes a flowery plea
for his client, Lagoupille.
The prosecuting attorney then sees
in the official government bulletin

' tr ell

that he has been fired and he quits.
The bulletin names Barbemolle the
prosecuting attorney. He then makes
a violent speech against his former
Finally the president of the court
reads the decision of the court. It
states that Barbemolle was wrong in
striking Alfred and should be pun-
ished by from six days to two years in
prison. But whereas Alfred had no
witnesses and whereas he used ille-!
gitimate means to expel Lagoupille,
Alfred is made to stand the expenses
of the suit.
This play will be enacted by mem-
bers of the department of Romance
The other comedies to be pre-
sented are "Rosalie" by Max Mau-
rey and "Le Cuvier," a medieval
farce. All the plays are under the
direction of Prof. Charles E. Koella,
faculty adviser to the French Club.
Tickets will be on sale in the Lydia
Mendelssohn box office from 10 a.m.
to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and from 10
a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
