DRAMATIC CLUB WILL OPEN GOZZI COMEDY DECEMBER 8

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The spirit of the early eighteenth-century Italian comedy will tread the boards of Brattle Hall on the evenings of December 6, 7, and 8, when the Dramatic Club will present "The Orange Comedy," an adaptation by Gilbert Seldes '14 from a comedy of Carlo Gozzi.

Gozzi was one of the most prominent exponents of the Comedie del Arte in the Italian drama of the eighteenth century. "The Love of the Three Oranges," the original from which Mr. Seldes made his adaptation, is a sort of fairy tale, with all the fantastic stock characters of early comedy. Mr. Seldes taking the idea of the Italian play, has fashioned an amusing burlesque of modern customs.

Following the three Cambridge performances at Brattle Hall, "The Orange Comedy" will be presented at the Fine Arts Theatre in Boston on the afternoon and evening of December 9. Dancing will follow the Brattle Hall presentations.
