Modern comedy by J. M. Barrie will be presented in the play Dear Brutus, a drama piece noted for "'its mixture of "touches of seriousness and fantasy. Berry has received world fame from his many comedies among which are the familiar plays, Peter Pan and What Every Woman Knows.

With this basis Barrie galvanizes comedy with absurdity to underscore Shakespeare's lines: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings." The cast for the production will consist of David Anderson as Mr. Death; John Simmons, Mr. Purdie; Bob Happ and Bob Newberry, Mr. Coade; Virginia Hollworth, Joanna Trout; Nancy Haley, Mrs. Death; Laurie Cum-mings, Mrs. Purdie; Ettie Wing, Mr. Coadie; Frank McNamar, Marey; Linda Welsh, Lady Caroline Lariey;1 Linda White, Margaret; and Tom Carter, stage manager.
