The opening night for the second
Elon Player production of the year
is set for Friday, March 6th, at 8
o'clock in Mooney Theatre, with a
.lav bill which lists two short plays,
Christ in the Concrete City” and
'The Bald Soprano,” The program,
vhich is open to the public, will
I'O be presented on Saturday night,
"Christ in the Concrete City,”
written by P. W. Turner, includes
1 cast of six and is described by
he author as an attempt to portray
he Passion of Christ through the
levelopment of three themes. The
irst theme invokes the story of
'mething that happened, the facts
dated by the actors who "step
ito and out of the historical char-
■rters,” There is no necessary con-
•'nitv between the v.irious ch.ar-
■cters portrayed by one actor.
The second point of view, involv-
n"T a formal choral presentation by
'he actors, shows the Passion In
■ a .story of "universal .signifi-
"ice, sneaking timelessly to all
"nnnkind.” Thirdly, the nhv at-
^mnt.' to relate the crucifixion to
