Notes

As seen from the minutes above, Charming Leandre was a late addition to this program. As in their earlier program in the year, all of the above plays are quick one-act plays. They also provide a different type of entertainment in each in that they are all different genres of play. The Hour Glass is based on the folktale “The Priest’s Soul”. A Charming Leandre is the English translated version from the original done by Theodore de Banville. The title of Where but in America is quite ironic due to the fact it is written by the Irish poet WB Yeats.
