'High Tor' to Sum Up
UO Theater's Year
As English profs end the year
by comparing romantic literature
with that of the modem period,
as Dean Theodore Kratt intro
duces the contemporary com
posers into his last few classes
and compares them to the roman
tic writers, so does the University
theater sum up its year’s activi
ties by presenting "High Tor,’’ a
combination of the two ages, to
its audience.
Maxwell Anderson, the author
of the romantic comedy, which
will be given May 22, 23, and 24,
in his writings has combined the
romanticism with the contem
porary works with such success
as to collect the Pulitzer prize
one year and the Drama Critics
Circle’s award for two years.
Starting out his career as a
ijflaywright, Anderson produced
romanticism dramas, "Elizabeth
the Queen,’’ and “Mary of Scot
land.’’ The influence of the con
temporary began to show with
the presentation of "Night over
Taos’’ and "Wingless Victory.”
The fantasy in the next Uni
versity theater play production
enabled the former newspaper
reporter to mix the qualities of
the two ages in this tale of land
speculators and a plucky lad who
refused to submit to the mercen
ary values of the industrial civili
Maxwell Anderson has been the
only stage author of the modern
day who has been able to use suc
cessfully blank verse as a dra
matic medium, but he well un
derstands the place of prose, and
in "High Tor,” the combination
of the two arts is predominant.
