A three-act drama, "Icebound," by Owen Davis, was the second presentation of the year by the dramatists. Following their usual custom they concluded
their program for the year with a drama after giving a comedy as their first
offering of the season. Davis's play won the Pulitzer Prize in 1923.
Henry Higgins was awarded the male lead as a result of his fine performance in "Professor, How Could You?" He shared honors with Phyllis Hubbard one of the best-known members of the group. New-comers in the cast
were Dan Rafferty, Betty Moyle, Pat Manning, Philip Rashid, lack Goodrich,
and Ruthanne Schneider.
