Dramatic Club to Show Gillette Drama Next
In step with the present trend in the American theatre toward comedy, the Harvard Dramatic Club has chosen as its next production, a farce, "Too Much Johnson," by William Gillette.
The play, first produced by Gillette in 1894, will be a contrast to the Club's last production, T.S. Eliot's "The Family Reunion," which was an involved work with a classic Greek theme and partly in verse form. The new play concerns a man who explains his absences from home to meet his French chorus girl mistress by saying that he must take trips to Cuba on business. Complications arise when his family forces his hand by making the adulterer take them to Cuba to see his imaginary plantation.
