QBlct, It Cast til "lt.. N. Tt
Are you Hamlet, or Polonius?
Have you noticed the motto? It tells
our whole story.
When Hamlet directed that the
players be "well bestowed," Polonius
answered that he would "use them after
their desert." In Hamlets retort his fine
spirit blazes. "God's bodykins, man, much
better! Use every man after his desert,
and who shall scape whipping? Use them
after your own honour and dignity!"
We know Polonius' tastes. "He's for
a jig or a tale of bawdry, or he sleeps."
So he despised a great art. The world is
full of such. Yet there are many spirits
that claim kinship with the Prince.
A group of them built the New
Theatre and spent millions in the hope of
"bestowing" the drama after the honor
and dignity of a great and enlightened
community. The hope was mistaken.
The 'tribe of Polonius routed them, and
yesterday invaded the intended temple.
The true temple of the drama is in the
minds and the hearts of the public. It was
so in the Greece of Sophocles, in the
France of Moliere, and in the England of
Shakespeare: And it is so to-day. Where
the Douglas sits, there is the head of the
table. The Douglas of our Drama is the
playwrights, actors and producers who
lead in intelligence and ambition. The
New Theatre died because it could not
win them away from the popular stage.
The impulse of The Drama Society
is the impulse of the earlier venture; but
instead of a temple of marble it is build?
ing a temple of the spirit?an organiza?
tion of all who, like the Prince of Shake?
speare's heart, understand the best and
enjoy it. They sit with the Douglas.
The art of our stage is often crude; but
it is vigorous, and the Society believes
that it holds the germ of far finer things.
Its members foster the best by attending
the best.
Are you of the tribe of Polonius, or
kin of Hamlet?
Whichever you are, this is the last
day we can address you here. If you de?
sire further acquaintance, you may have
it by filling out the blank below.
The Program in Brief
Members of The Drama Society receive ?he heit sent?, for
?he ?Set* play? only, at the bo ?.-o flier price.
They ?ave money, time and (rouble.
With two stroke? of ihe pen they accomplish what much
telephoning often fails to accomplish; and they safeguard them*
selves against the w.iste of their resources and their time on let*
enjoyable plays.
Out of twelve plays selected at the ?best of the icuon, each
member agrees to take ticket? to ten, for any performance
within the first month of the run. The charge for bulletin* and
for the delivery of tickets i? two dollar?, making the total y???rly
subscription, covering twenty tickets, $42.
Thi? may be paid at once, or in ten in?tnlment?, at ticket? ar?
A member may resign at .?ny time without financial lot?. All
money advanced for ;?i ?y? unliiled will be returned.
Every intelligent play receive? at once an intelligent hearing,
financial ?upport, and the very be?! advertising?the report of
discriminating people who have ?e?n it. Artistic play? ar? thu?
guaranteed a considerable measure of ?ucee??.
In thi? way, and in thi? way only, can th? art-loving public
injure that more good play? ?re produced, and that no really
excellent play ?hall fail.
