SHAPIRO'S PLAY FOLDS UP IN SPITE OF BRAVE TWO WEEKS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

SO PROUDLY WE HALL, play turned down by the Harvard Dramatic Club last year, closed this week on Broadway after a brief run of two weeks. Joseph M. Shapiro '36, "Playwright" in his class year book, wrote the play two years ago and submitted it to the Dramatic Club for production last spring. The Club Executive Committee is reported to have liked the show on reading it last December, but turned it down because of production difficulties and very possible censorship from the University or City Hall. At this time, the Club put on PUDDING FULL OF PLUMS, another student written offering.

The Shapiro play, dealing with life at a military school, opened at the Forty-Sixth Street Theatre on September 22. VARIETY, theatre weekly, called it "sincere, definitely not box office."
