Class in Dramatic Interpretation Will
Produce Moliere’s Cohiedy at
Skinner’s Butte Amphitneatre
By Mandell Weiss.
“You have never written anything
which amused me more, and your play
is excellent,” was the commendation
which King Louis XIV bestowed upon
Moliere after witnessing the perform
ance of the Bourgeois Gentilhomme
(The Shop Keeper Turned Gentle
man), bn November 23, 1670, at
Chambord.
This play also found favor with the
members of the Drama Guild, who
have selected it for the commencement
production to be given by the class
in Dramatic Interpretation at the pic
turesque amphitheatre on the north
slope of Skinner’s Butte. The play
calls for an extra large cast, special
designed cpstumes and scenery, and
Professor Reddie stated that no time
and expense will be spared in making
this production rival “King Lear,”
last year’s offering.
A noteworthy feature will be found
in the dancing element which the au
thor, at the .time of writing his playr,
was obliged to introduce in order to
gain the patronage of the king, but
he has done this in a way to make
the occasion, in almost every instance,
extremely plausible. Dr. Bertha Stu
art will assume charge of the terpsi
chorean element.
Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme is a
comedy in five acts. It was first act
ed by Moliere (Jean Baptiste Poque
lin) and his company before Louis
XIV and his court at Chambord, on
October 14, 1670, and on November
2<f of the safrfe year. It was after
the second performance that the king
paid the high tribute to the author.
° When the play was afterward pro
duced in Paris, the Bourgeois were
good humored enough to laugh at
what °each was convinced were the
weaknesses of his peighbor, and the
play has evei* since been considered
one of the most mirth-provoking plays
ever written. Moliere acted the part
of Jourdain, the Bourgeois, and his
wife Nicole, the servant. ° 0
Moliere’s plays are especially noted
for their universality; almost any one
of them might be produced in modern
costume and in modern setting, with
out in the least affecting the spirit.
He is a master of construction, and
his adherence to the three units of
time, place and action, is renowned.
The play is an appropriate finale
if the most successful dramatic sea
son in the annals of the University.
The cast will be announced by Pro
fessor Reddie soon.
