ARDEN CLUB of SOUTHERN METHODIST UNIVERSITY
Everbody’s Husband is a play about the night before a woman’s marriage and how her Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother look upon marriage. The Pot Boiler is a satire about the very construction of a play. It follows Mr. Sud and a cast of desktop items in pursuit of creating a play. The Birthday of Infanta is a play about two brothers pursuit of the Spanish crown and is known for being quite absurd. One might look at this hodgepodge list of plays and wonder why the Arden Club would ever put on a performance of all three plays? To begin with, all the plays are quite short and length and therefore easier to pull off. The second reason is all three of these plays had just recently been produced on Broadway, making them quite relevant for the time.
