The last few rehearsals of "Marlowe," the Radcliffe play, which will have its first night on Monday, give promise of an extremely interesting performance. With the completion of the scenery and the final arrangement of the properties, the cast are acquiring final form for the dress rehearsal tomorrow. All of the principal parts, and many of the minor ones, are taken by graduates and undergraduates of Harvard and Radcliffe who have had considerable experience on the amateur stage.
Professor G. P. Baker '87, who plays the title role, has long been well known for his acting in the annual performances of the Cambridge Dramatic Club, and J. G. Hart '93, who takes "Gabriel Andrew" is the principal player of old men's parts in the same club. "Richard Bame" has been assigned to R. L. Lyman, instructor in public speaking. Miss Jane Sever, who will play "Alison," made a memorable impression two years ago in Brattle Hall in "The Importance of Being Earnest." Miss Emma C. Noyes, "Her Ladyship," and Mrs. Hutchinson, "Dame Benet," were formerly prominent in Radcliffe theatricals. W. E. Sachs 1L., will be remembered for excellent work in recent years, both in the Cambridge Dramatic Club plays and in those of the Deutscher Verein.
Among the undergraduates, C. Kempner '06 took the difficult part of "Striese" in the German play, and acted with remarkable grace and character work as "Trueweit" in the D. U. performances of "The Silent Woman." H. Kempner '08 and A. M. Hurlin '06 played "Captain Otter" and "Sir Amorous," respectively, in the same play. W. B. Wilbur 2L. has acquired very promising technique in amateur comedy parts.
