Fre nch PI ay
By Peggy Brown
“But what’s the 38 for, Johnny,”
I asked on my second trip to J.
Smith, Milliner, to ask about Am-
phytryon 38, the Little Theatre’s
next production. “You know, it’s
been bothering me too,” he replied.
“I’ll just call Doris (Pardington,
the director) and ask.” W’e were
informed that the author of this
satirical farce, Jean Giraudoux, had
attempted 38 times to recreate the
Greek legend in the form which
was translated and adapted from
his French into this present form.
The legend involves the God Jupi
ter (Bill Griffin) and his lOve for
Alkemena (Mrs. J. “Spotty” Simp
son), the wife of the great Greek-
General, Amphytryon (also Bill
Griffin). Mercury (Johnny Smith)
is Jupiter’s partner in crime, and
the play opens as they discuss plans
for Jupiter’s conquest of Alkemena
on earth. As is common in Greek
plays, the servant -to Amphytryon
(Sosie, also played by Johnny
Smith) plays an often subtly in
fluential part in the action.
The play, first produced in 1937
by the Theatre Guild, Inc., has a
Grecian theme and background, but
makes no attempt at historical or
geographical realism. I’ve been ad
vised to expect great things of the
set. Since Johnny is working on
costumes, we know they too will be
a marvelous addition, if his help to
us on The Boy Friend is any indi

Miss Battle’s Introduction to the
Theater class got a quick look at
the set under construction for Am
phytryon 38 during a field trip to
the Little Theater Tuesday after
noon. Millard McDonald, the com
pany’s new set designer-technician,
explained his plans for the three-
act “heavenly” play, which include,
among other celestial novelties, a
