Religious Drama Largely Attended Conflicts and intrigues which produced the dramatic events of Good Friday were woven into the religious drama, "Barter," staged by the Youth Fellowship before a capacity audience at the Church of the Brethren Tuesday anil Wednesday evenings. Held in observance of Holy Week, this year's play, written by Urban Na^le. illustrated the conditions existing unckr the rule of Pilate, the Procurator whom Rome had sent to rule Palestine. The Pharisees, most dominant Jewish leaders, turned their powei to their own political ends. Intrigue mid corruption reigned. Because the power of life and death was in Roman hands alone, the .Jewish leaders found it necessary to persuade Pilate to consent to the death of Jesus. In the leading roles were: Miriam, played by Julia Groh; Rhea, Jobal's second wife, portrayed by Margaret Palmer; Phanuel, of Judea.

COLLINS Bill Barr, both of whom have appeared previously this season in minor roles, will undertake the parts of Elaine llarpe- and Mortimer Brewster whose love affail- takes place under most unusual con- ditioiiK. Airs. Collins will lie remembered for her part in "Blithe Spirit," as the rather fligJHy Mrs. Braclman. It was a role she handled well but one which did -lot give her much chance to demonstrate her talents. As the heroine of Arsenic and Old Lace she will have a far broader opportunity as the daughter of an Episcopal clergyman in love with the dramatic critic member of the zany Brewster family. Although this is the first sfason in which Mrs. Collins has worked with the Playmakers she has had a wealth of previous experience. She was active in dramatic circles in school and college and since graduation has done considerable work with church plays including directing and producing. Others hi tlie cast include Claude Potterh'eld, Amos Harper, Kllen Heffner, Helen Render. Charles Scharff. Sydney Cushwa, Kdwin M<> Clanahan. Robert Grant, Al Halbach.
