THE RUNAWAYS -What
promises to be one of the
biggest events of the season will be
the presentation of "The Run
aways" at the town hall May 1st
and 2nd under the auspices and
for the benefit of The Grange.
Tfte story deals with the theft
of valuable jewels from a noted
writer of fiction. The sheriff and
his deputies .are hot on the trail
of a mysterious man and woman in
a gray touring car and overtake
"their game" at the home of a
wealthy ranch owner.
The scene of the play is laid in
Travers county, Texas. The time
being the present, one need have
no fear of witnessing a "wild
west" melo-drama of the "blood
and thunder" variety.
Tne Runaways is a comedy in
three acts, sparkling with funny
situations and laugh creating lines.
uowever, there is a thread of hu
man interest interwoven tlirough
out the lines, but tears and sorrow
and gloom are absent.
"The Runaways" was original
ly produced in New York City and
had a successful run. Every
member in the cast which will pro
duce the play here is a well known
local person. See next Peek's pa
