The Players' Club ts ihe oldest club at the University and !sas always claimed to be the foremost* I: has done much u> bring amilcur dramatics in British Columbia lo their prevent
honoured position.
just si* weeks after the University v'jmc into existence in the uld
'shacks" at Fairview, ir.uder.is uf Professor F. G. C. Wood's drama
Course felt the urge to produce plays. Th<;v elecicd Mr. Wood av
honorary president and director and Organised ■* club, [Hen open to
.lTiy student but now restricted, bv competitive try-outs, to 70 members.
With Jerome K, Jerome's "Fanny jnd the Servant Problem," presented on February IK, 1*1 ft, in aid (if the University Red Cross,
repeated by request anil given also in Victoria and New Westminster,
The Players" Club began both its annual tour .nut its contributions to
The club raised SA.QOfi for the University Red C rtns, Western Um-
vcrvities Battalion, Shaughnessy Military Hospital and other war-time
purposes, 11,500 lor a University war memorial, $4,1 00" for stage
cquipment and s200 for Green Room furnishings. The Vancouver
General Hospital and the Jubilee Hospital. Victoria* have received
UrgC sums through Players' Club efforts; and all tour profits, beyond
guaranteed expenses, have been turned over to the local sponsor* for
charity work.
The tour grew rapidly* as can be seen from the list of plays and
number of performances; IV14, "! jnny and the Servant Problem, '
Jerome R. Jerome, fowr times; 1917„ "Merely Mary Ann," Israel ZangwJI* four times; MMH,
"Alice Sit-by-thcFirc." Sir James M, Barrie. four times; I 91^, The Importance of being
Lamest," Oscar Wdde* three times; 1920, "Green Stockings." A- l.r W. Minwn, ten times;
1921, "Sweet Lavender." Sir Arthur Pinern* twelve time*; 1922. "Mr, Pirn Passes By," A. A,

nineteen times; 193), "Alibi," Agatha Christie and Michael Morton, seventeen times; 19)4,
"Caesar and Cleopatra," George Bernard Shaw,  four  times.
Last year's spectacular show could be produced only in the University Theatre, but this year
the tnur will be renewed and* if possible, extended into Alberta and Washington. The tour
establishes contact with ouilvmg parts of British Columbia, and provide* wonderful training
for actors.
But the work of the Players' Club by no means consists of the spring play only. Lour one act
plays are given annually at Christmas, mainly for the benefit of new members and wuli no
charge for admission.    They have always been of high standard.
Anuther activity is the Play Distribution Bureau, which helps amateurs all over the province
by sending them plays free on  request.
The club encourages student playwrights by a $50 prize and production of the winning play.
In 19)1 no less than three student plays were given, and one, "Fog," by Mr. Sydney Risk, has
recently had world broadtail  by the B.B.C
The Players' Club has alsu developed distinguished actors. Miss Jessie Todhunter, first leading
lady, played on Broadway, Miss Dorothy Adams in repetory* and Mr. Garrett Livingstone at
Hollywood; others in the Little Theatre and Players' Club Alumni- In the Regional Drama
Festival last year eight of the nine competing casts contained  former  Players' Club actors*
At early as 1921, Mr. J. Butterfield wrote in The Province: "The UBC Players' Club has
succeeded in the face of the greatest difficulties in bringing its annual performances to a pitch
of perfection that I have never seen equalled by amateurs in j very wide experience of the
drama," Fur this the credit belongs chiefly to the directors: Mr. Wood, 1915 in I9U (exeep
ting L929); MrJ. W, A. Ferguson, 192?; Mr. Sydney Ritk, 19)2 and 19)3. and Miss Dorothy
Somerset, E9)4 and 1935. Thanks are also due to Mrs. D- A. Suttie* gracious chaperone on
M tours, and to the Christmas play coaches, particularly  Dr.  A.  F. B> Clark.

"People don't do such things!"
Don't they?
Well, Hedda Gabler does. Her story, says
William Archer, is "the most poignant character-
tragedy in literature."
Hedda is a flesh portrait of a hyper-aesthetic
woman — poised, cultivated, intellectual, yet torn
by repressions. She is a moral coward, jealous
and selfish, hopelessly warped by conflicting passions. In short, as one cynical critic remarks, "she
is the woman you took in to dinner last night."
Of all Ibsen's plays this is the most perfectly
shaped, the most clear-cut and direct It is not only
good literature, but good theatre. Like "Camille,"
it is the goal of every ambitious actress, and has
been the favourite vehicle of such stars as Mrs.
Patrick Campbell, Mrs. Fiske, Alia Nazimova, Elean-
ora Duse and Eve Le Gallienne.
In celebrating its twentieth anniversary by
presenting "Hedda Gabler" for the first time in
Western Canada, the Players' Club truly "comes
of age" and takes its place in the adult theatre. The Georgia Pharmacy Limited
takes this opportunity of congratulating The Players' Cluh

Mr. Wood, especially, by his personality and untiring efforts, inspired in the members that high
morale and club tradition which enabled them to carry on when in I9J1 his retirement due to
ill health suddenly left them rather in the position of an Italy without a Mussolini.
A professional director took over the coaching duties so long
performed voluntarily by Mr. Wood; the late Dr, F. C, Walker
became honorary president. Dr, Walker realized that never again
would the club find anyone to work for it as Mr. Wood bad done,
md he encouraged the student executive to take more responsibility,
at the same time helping them with his experience and inspiring
them with his inimitable personality. Dr. Walker died suddenly
last summer: the Players' Club echoes the words written about him
by Dr. G. G. Sedgcwick—-"Not many people can be at once so
matter-of-fact and so sensitively thoughtful, so individual in nature
ime so strictly loyal to fellowship and duty,"
cr  last  year  the club made an  increased  effort  to
put  the  University   in  its  proper   position as  a  leader  towards  the

entirely by students under the direction of Tommy Lea,
Professor Thorlcif Larsen, the present honorary president, is .also
enthusiastic for this work of educational leadership, and consequently the club is presenting this year one of the greatest tragedies of
all time.
The year has been exceptionally active. A reading group and
make-up classes have been formed, a visit of the Cornish School
Puppeteers from Seattle was sponsored, the Christmas plays were
the greatest success in years, a good first showing was made in the
Dominion Drama Festival, and the tour is to be revived.
Altogether, after a difficult period of transition, the Players' Club
now looks forward to renewed advance on firmer and broader lines. BEACON
