High comedy will regin at Leverett on Monday, April 13, when the fifteenth- century French farce, "Monsieur Patelin," will be presented in English. This play, probably the most popular of its type, has had a long and distinguished stage history. In 1904 the Comedie Francaise presented a highly successful performance of "Patelin" to an enthusiastic audience, and 1913 saw the show put on by the Harvard "47 Workshops."
Rehearsals are in full swing under the direction of Ernest J. Simmons, instructor in English, and parts have been assigned as follows: Pierre Patelin, Edwin K. Packard '37; Guillemette, Chester G. Ormond '38; the draper, Robert G. Wolfe '38; the judge, Morris Earle '38; the shephered, Roger F. Duncan '38.
The stage committee, headed by Louis L. Sutro '38, is composed of Richard W. Ittleson '37, David H. Kimball '38, R. Branston Williams, Commonwealth Fellow from Oxford; Milton C. Devolites '38, Ralph I. Smith '38, William M. Judd '38, David M. McAllister '38, and Robert P. Sorlien '38.
