CERCLE WILL OBTAIN MODERN EFFECT IN PLAY WITH TAXIS

Phonographs and taxis instead of the conventional violins and chaises will contribute the modern touch to the Cercle Francais production, on December 13 and 14, of Moliere's comedy of manners; "Les Precieuses Ridicules". "Moliere in modern dress" is an entirely novel experiment in the staging of French drama, by means of which the Cercle, for the first time producing its plays with entirely amateur direction, hopes to start a new trend in the presentation of classic French plays.

A few of the lines have been changed to conform to the modernized externals. The scenery, designed by W. B. Cowen '30, president of the society, is of the modern drape type, and the male members of the cast will appear in cutaways, excepting the butler in tuxedo and the chauffeur who replaces the chair carriers of Moliere's day.
