The first public performance of "Les Boulinard," a comedy in three acts by Ordonneau, Valabregue and Keroul, will be given by the Cercle Francais in Jordan Hall, Boston, this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock. The second public performance of the play, which is the twenty-third annual dramatic production of the society, will take place in Jordan Hall at 8.15 o'clock this evening. Tickets may be obtained at Herrick's and at Schoenhof's in Boston, and at the branch store of the Co-operative and of H. B. H. Ripley '12, Claverly 1, in Cambridge.
The regular graduates' night performance of the play was held in Brattle Hall Monday evening. Although a number of the characters are little more than figureheads, the excellent and very natural acting of three or four of the leading characters made the production a success. The plot centres in a typographical error in which the name "Godard" is printed "Bodard." As both men are candidates for the office of "SousPrefet," much confusion is caused, in which Cecile Boulinard and her father appear. At the eleventh hour, when Bodard's change of winning Cecile depends on his appointment, a telegram from his uncle informs him that he is appointed to another sous-prefecture.
