Brecht Play
Offered by
Theater Club
BY ALICE BOGDONOFF
The first American production
of Berthold Brecht's "A Man
Equals A Man" is now running its
first week at the Arts Theater
Club.
The club obtained the first Eng-
lish translation of the play
through Gerhardt Nellhaus, a per-
sonal friend of the German play-
wright and translator of the
script.
"We are not doing the play in
the Brecht manner," director
Strowan Robertson explained.
Brecht did not write for the
theater-in-the-round, nor did he
x write for o 1952 audience."
Brecht, an avid anti-Hitlerist
wrote "A Man Equals A Man" in
the pre-Nazi days for an audience
of German workers. However,
Robertson feels that the anti-
militarist theme of the play has
a timeless message revolviijg
around the rights of the individu-
al.
"Brecht demands thought, and
the effect of the play is a stimu-
lation of thought," Robertson
promised.
In the cast of the play are four
newcomers to th Arts Theater
Club, Jo Willoughby, Joyce Hen-
dricks, Harry Elton and Bob
Hughes.
Miss Willoughby, who is from
New York, has siudied at the
Royal Academy of Dramatic
Arts in London, toured with the
London Theater Company, the
USO, and the Margaret Web-
ster Company.
A University graduate, Miss
Hendricks was a member of the
Neighborhood Playhouse, and re-
ceived in 1950 the "Best off-
Broadway Actress" award.
The new male actors are both
from Wayne University and hale
played at the Highland Park sum-
mer theater.
The Brecht play will run until
Feb. 24.
