"The Pot Boilers" and "Cinderella
Married" Are the Other Two
Plays to be Given
Three one-act plays will be pre-
sented August 10 in Sarah Caswell
Angell Hall. The castes wil consist
of the members of the class in one-
act plays under Lionel Crocker.
'Judge Lynch," a Belasco Prize play,'
treats the unjustice done to the neg-
roes in the South. Alice Gersten-
berg's "The Pot-Boilers," is a very
clever comedy, a take-off on the writ-
ing of plays. If it is as good in final
performance as it is in the rehearsals
[t will be a screaming burlesque that
'6 bound to appeal to the audience.
'Cinderella Married" is the name of
he third play, and depicts the trials
ind tribulations of poor Cinderella
ifter her marriage to the Prince
'Will Play in Brighton
Arrangements have also been made
o present these plays in Brighton on
August 9. All of the advertising,
usiness, committees, etc. that will be

necessary, are to be taken care of
by the members of the class.
Mr. Crocker, director, has been on
the University Faculty for several
years, and has just returned from
the round - the - world university

cruise, on which he was the head of
the Public Speaking department. Un-:
der his direction the members of the
class attain a naturalness on the
stage which few directors produce.
Johnson Assists
R. M. Johnson, head of the Lan-'
guage department in the Barbour In-I
termediate School of Detroit, is assist-f
ing Mr. Crocker. Mr. Johnson is a
member of the Saginaw Little Theater
movement, and is at the head of the
Junior Little Theatre in Detroit.
It is interesting to note that Miss
Amy Loomis and Robert Henderson
are products of these University Play
Production classes.

A Review, By
Because of their understanding of
Hedda Gabler, and because of their
excellent realization of all the po-
tentialities of it, the Rockford Play-
ers, in their last night's performance,
deserve praise of the highest order.
By their superlative acting they not
only convinced their sceptical audience
that Hedda Gabler was not beyond
them, but won for themselves the
rank of genuine artists. They seemed
to forget, in their effort to really
bring their roles to life, all the sterile
stock in trade tricks that they, in
their previous acting of the vaporous
Broadway farces (Broadway-the su-
preme arbiter of Ameica's dramatic
fortune. God save us!) had apparently
so permanently acquired.
Miss Keans Played Well
If Ibsen could have seen Elsie Hern-
don Kearns take the part of his Hedda'
it might have taken him a long time
to recognize, in her, his own daugh-
ter, but he surely would have acknowl-
edged Mist Kearns' Hedda as convinc-
ing and as tragic a figure as any that
he might have had in mind. Bored'
beyond life by her commonplace and!
ineffective husband and by the small
town, with its pettiness, in which herI
lot is cast; filled with a fierce desireI
to be, like an eagle, free, powerful;
and dominating; baffled by her in-
bred and ineradicable cowardice and'
t frustrated by it in her every attempt
at revolt or dreamed of deed of dar-
ing; Hedda Gabler is as tragic a
woman as was ever conceived by
Aeschylus or Sophocles, just as help-!
less in the hands of fate, and just as
" much its victim. From the incident,
early in the play, of Auntie's new'
bonnet, until Eilert Loveborg, in the
third act takes the pistol and promises
to "do' it beautifully" and "with vine
