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 manner. , 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 cast. Gilbert Williams, technical direc tor, designed the set which repre sents a rich, Tudor style manor in terior. Pat Welch is assistant di rector and Gerry Hettinger is stage manager.
