The play by Sam and Bella Spcwack, authors of such previous hits as "Boy Meets Girl" | and "Kiss Me, Kate" Is built I around these three carefree crooks, ! who steal with Innflccnt relish, cm bmlc with infinite grace, and mur- j d c r with a sober and methodical 'ccnlilily.

"Tiger at the Giites" the fifth play being presented, is being given in collaboration with the CSC an- n u a l Fine Arts Feslival. "Tiger at the Gales" Is a satirical comedy using the oft-told story of the Trojan War lo make a modern point about all wars. Despite the seriousness of the play's theme, its tone s comic as it debunks the classic figures of the Trojan War. Its action is laid in the king's palace in Troy when Hector returning Iriumphiinlly from a minor war Finds his country on the verge of n major wnr with the Greeks because his brother Paris has ab- [lucled Helen. Helen is portrayed as a self-centered beauty, who ROCS along with everybody always ending up having her own way. Her repartee has the charm of Marilyn Monroe's unthinking directness. As John Chapman o[ the New York Daily News says: "Tiger at the Gates" Is an intellectual, witty and cynical sermon about man's clcrnnl need lo go lo war." The play was written by Jean Giraudoux, who. is known to world audiences and was translated by the brilliant English playwright Christopher Fry. It won the New York Drama Critics Award for the best play of the season of foreign authorship. "This drama is fl stunning piece of work. II wrestles with some big ideas with passion and humor; it is a contribution to thought as well as lo sardonic entertainment", says Brooks Atkinson. "Reclining Figure", a hilarious comedy by Harry Kurnilz is- Ihe final play of the summer season. It is a sparkling, witty comedy which is concerned with a bogus painting known as Ihe "fleclining Figure". Lucas Edgerlon Is a multimillionaire who manufaclures a sofl drink called "Tinkle" that he is constantly forcing on everyone. His major eccentricity is hoarding art treasures in his basement. He runs afoul of a high-pressure art dealer, and an idealistic young salesman who finds himself wilh a fake masterpiece on his hands. The love interest is provided by the young salesman and Lucas' daugh ter. Laugh mounts upon laugh, as romance and art are delightfully mixed in this light-hearted story of the cheerfully dishonest world of the art experts.
