Deutscher Verein Play Tonight.


The Deutscher Verein will give the first performance of its sixth annual play, Gustave von Moser's, "Der Veilchenfresser," this evening at 8.15 o'clock in Brattle Hall. The Pierian Sodality will play at this performance. The play will be given again tomorrow night in Union Hall, Boston. The Mandolin Club will play at the second performance. Tickets will be on sale in Brattle Hall at 7.30 o'clock this evening.

"Der Veilchenfresser" is a military play in three acts. Gustav von Moser, the author, is one of the leading comedy dramatists in Germany and has produced, in a period of less than fifty years, nearly a hundred plays, several of which have been translated into English. "Der Veilchenfresser" is an excellent example of his military plays. The atmosphere is essentially Prussian, and many points indicative of military traits and foibles are subtly introduced. The general motive of the play is to show that in spite of their apparent frivolity, German officers are capable of entertaining the highest ideals. The staging and the costumes of the play will be more elaborate than has been the case in former years.
