Article "Three One-Act Plays to be Given Tonight at 8:15 O'Clock"

Description

The University Players hosted a program of three one-act plays in the winter of 1931. The plays selected were written by students, including "Beau of Bath", directed by Jane Little, "The Son's Father", directed by its author Mary Lucile Saunders, and "Pot Boiler" served humorous relief for the evening. "The Son's Father" had won multiple awards, including the local Alpha Psi Omega contest, and depicts a "stirring story of the cruelty and craftiness of an American merchant in China." The article mentions the "close acquantance with Chinese life and customs" that Saunders has, as she spent some portion of her life in China before coming to Westhampton College.
