Ferrando, have accepted a wag-
er with Don Alfonso, who does
not believe that the ladies' af-
fectionis are constant.
Within 24 hours the two young
gentlemen return in the most ob-
vious sort of disguise and after
a series of ludicrous and ridicu-
lous complications instigated by
Don Alfonso and Despina, a ser-
vant girl, almost succeed in mis-
leading the hearts of Fiordiligi

Volpone To Be
Theatre Guild Plan
Announced by Stuart
Ben Jonson's "Volpone" will be
presented by the Theatre Guild on
May 5 and 6 at Patteiigill Auditor-
ium, it was announced yesterday
by Harvey Stuart, '50, newly elect-
ed president of the group.
The technical crew and busi-

meet at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Temporary Classroom Building.
Persons interested in these aspects
of the production may attend.
Casting auditions will be held
at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow and Friday

Len Rosenson, seen this sea-
son in "Murder in the Cathe-
dral," "Orphee," and "Closed
Session," will direct the lusty
sixteenth century comedy. Ro-
senson toured Europe with the
play while head of a Special
Services group in 1946.
"Volpone is a robust satire by
one of Shakespeare's leading riv-
als. We feel that the production
will prove of exceptional interest
to a college audience, and is at the
same time in keeping with the
high dramatic standards origin-
ally set by the founders of the
group," Stuart said.
