The Deutscher Verein will present "Der Unglaeubige Thomas," by Carl Laufs and Wilhelm Jacoby as its fifteenth annual play. Two productions will be given, one in Jordan Hall, Boston, on December 5, and one in Brattle Hall, Cambridge, on December 7.
The scenes of the play are laid in a modern city in Germany at the present time, and the plot of the comedy turns upon the supposed hypnotizing of Ignaz Doell by his nephew.

Members of the Verein will take the male parts and ladies from Boston will play the feminine roles. Mr. August Vatter, of Boston, will act as coach.
The provisional cast is as follows:
