OLD AND MODERN COMEDIES

DRAMATIC CLUB TO PRESENT TWO PLAYS IN BRATTLE HALL AT 8.15 O'CLOCK.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Dramatic Club will give the first performance of its two fall plays in Brattle Hall this evening at 8.15 o'clock, this being the special performance for undergraduates. "The Three Strangers," a dramatization by Leonard Hatch-'05 of Thomas Hardy's tale of the same name will be given as a curtain-raiser. The piece deals with a battle of wits between a sheep-stealer and a hangman, and the special feature of an old English reel has been interpolated. The second play, "Let's Get Married," by E. L. Beach, 1G., is a farce-comedy in three acts. It deals with the attempts of two college chums to elope, not suspecting that their plans are doomed to be thwarted by the complication of a third elopement in the same house. Suitcases become mixed, and charges of faithlessness lead to quarrels and the shattering of ideals. Youthful foibles are amusingly played upon and the complicated situations well handled.

Tickets at $1 and $.75 for tonight's performance may be purchased at the Co-operative Branch, or of T. W. Swett '15, Brentford 21. Tomorrow evening, the plays will be given a regular public presentation in Brattle Hall, the prices being $1.50, $1, and $.75. Tickets may be purchased at the Co-operative Branch, Herrick's, Tyson's in Boston, Burke's, or of T. W. Swett '15. After the performance this evening there will be a dance, for which music will be furnished by a student orchestra led by L. G. del Castillo '14.
