To Run
Six Days
Play Called Panacea
For Forthcoming
Exam-Week Blues
rvecommenueu as a mgmy palat
able dosage for the forthcoming
exam-week blues, A. A. Milne’s gay
comedy, “The Dover Road,” opens
tonight in Johnson hall at 8 p.m.
for a six-day run. Under the direc
tion of Mrs. Ottilie T. Seybolt, the
play is being presented by the Uni
versity Theater guild.
The one scene of the play is laid
in a spacious, country home along
side the Dover Road in England.
It is on this road that those who
tire of the straight and narrow
path of monotonous matrimony
traverse en. route to the Dover
Calais boat for the continent.
Charming Millionaire
The owner of the home is Mr.
Latimer, an amiable millionaire
who likes to spend his money point
ing out that people who can’t find
happiness in marriage will certain
ly not discover it by running away
from marriage. He does all this in
a very charming, witty way that
delivers the philosophy of the play
in an amusing and very enjoyable
, Mr. Latimer, played by Bob Over,
leading Guild player, snares in his
net Leonard (Dick Rayburn) who
has run away with Anne (Grace
Hoffman) to escape his minister
ing angel of a wife Eustacia (Lou
ise Clouston and Sue Fernimen).
Miss Fernimen and Miss Clouston
.will alternate performances in the
role of Eustacia.
Eustacia Elopes
Eustacia, who has eloped with
Nicholas (Gerald Lundy), is also
paught in Latimer’s home where
the two couples are compelled to
remain for a week. Playwright
Milne gives the progressive stages
of the cure as disillusionment set
tles over the four to snuff out thefr
previous ardor. After all, Latimer
reasons, a man with a cold in his
head, unshaven, ungroomed, miser
able, and generally disagreeable is
a most unromantic figure.
Don. Smith, as the perturbable
butler Dominic, and Doreen Pitcher
as the first maid complete the small
