The "47 Workshop" will present "The Call of the Mountain," a play in four acts by E. C. Ranck, at Agassiz House Theatre, this evening and Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock. The play is a tragedy of the Kentucky mountains, centering around the attempts of an unscrupulous mountaineer to keep his position as boss of the county. Mr. Ranck is entirely familiar with the life in Kentucky, and his main character, Zeke. Holston, played by S. J. Hume 1G., is not overdrawn with his killings and defiance of the law.
Mr. Ranck has had a great deal of experience in dramaturgy. One of his plays, "The Night Riders," was produced by the Dramatic Club in the fall of 1911, and he wrote "We, The People," which John Craig presented at the Castle Square some time ago, in collaboration with J. F. Ballard.
