Play Production
Presents 'What
A Life,' Dec. 12
Dilemmas of Henry
Aldrich To Be Enacted
Successes and failures of the ado-
lescent Henry Aldrich constitute the
hilarious action of "What a Life,"
first play of the winter season to be
offered by Play Production.
The Clifford Goldsmith comedy, to
be presented at 8:30 p.m. Dec. 12-15
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
centers around the problem child of
Central High School who turns ev-
erything he touches into a tangle.
Sympathetic Principal
The complexities of Henry's high
school dilemmas, however, are simpli-
fied when he discovers that a sym-
pathetic school principal is on his
side and will help him untangle the
webs which have become more than
he can manage.
Although Goldsmith primarily is
interested in creating laughter, his
fondness for the human stuff in
adolescent youth is revealed by the
touch of nostalgia which makes an
audience sympathize with the auth-
or's hero.
Inspiration for Play
Goldsmith spent some time lectur-
ing in Philadelphia High Schools
where he received the inspiration for
his youthful character.
. Tickets for the play will be on sale
Monday, Dec. 10 in the theatre box
office. All students will be given a
special rate for the performances on
