This ranks them as one of the most active touring theatre groups in the country. Drexel H. Riley is the producer-director of the group. Selected highlights from Os borne’s “Luther” will portray this Sixteenth Century “angry young man” in a passionate struggle with his own conscience and his revolt against the authorities of the Catholic Church, which led to Pro testantism. Luther was searching for a faith to hold when he be came beset with disbelief in The Establishment — a search with which many young people in to day’s struggle can identify. Though Martin Luther provoked bitter controversy, not to n ention 200 years of religious wars, Os borne’s play about him provoked no particular controversy in its original London and New York presentations. Audiences of all faiths regarded it not as religious history, nor even as a biography, but as a sweeping drama of size and power about the most pro found human feelings. The play won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Tony Award of the 1963-1964 season. The English Playwright, John Osborne achieved world re- known with his play "Look Back in Anger” in the mid-1950’s and also is authorship of the Oscar- winning movie, "Tom Jones.” Student nomination and election of the five general officers for the Student Government Association 1972-73 will be held during March, The executive body includes a President, Vice President, Secre tary, Treasurer, and Chief Justice.
