HDC to Produce Chekhov, Brecht
The Harvard Dramatic Club last night selected Chekhov's The Three Sisters and Bertolt Brecht's The Good Woman of Setzuan as its first two productions for next year.
The Good Woman was originally scheduled for production this May, but was dropped after its director, Charles L. Mee '60, took a leave of absence. For its fourth production, the H.D.C. joined with the Independent Players to produce John van Druten's I Am a Camera, opening this Wednesday.
Elizabeth D. Stearns '60 will direct The Three Sisters, and the sets will be designed by John C. Beck '60. Readings for the October opening will begin Tuesday, although the play will probably not be finally cast until next Fall. The Good Woman is scheduled for production in December.
Last year, the entire slate of productions for this year was selected in the Spring. The system was abandoned, according to James E. Stinson '59, president, because it has proved "too inflexible."
