We have not limited ourselves to the production of Negro plays, feeling that our people are just as capable of depicting the spontan - ity, tragedy, and happiness of life as we see it and feel it Negro life as we live it. We do now ever, wish to develop a Negro Art Theatre, and what our program of the future will be, remains to be seen. Just what is the place of the Little Theatre in the development ot jviegro drama.' certainly we are more free to experiment, and are less hampered and bound than the professional stage. I he opportunity which - the Little Theatre offers the. Negro youth of today is invaluable, and it certainly tends to insure a brighter future for the Negro actor. What are our plans for the future? First: To establish a permanent Little Theatre in Harlem. Second: Tt make a definite contribution to Negro .Drama and Literature by encouraging the writing of plays and producing them. Third: To train and develop talent for the stage. In order to accomplish thi program, we earnestly invite the in - trumpet until the wife and best friend are involved in the greatest of all scandals does he dare print that?

"The Bat Whispers" is the kind of story that leaves you hanging in mid - air while you witness surprise after surprise,, never knowing what will happen next.
