"...Our delight only increased throughout the play itself,
from the moment when the curtain first rose on the "Garden of the Townshend
House" till it fell on "The Same, five weeks later." Unfamilar
as we were with the actors, the gaily uniformed officers and the two pretty
heroines gave an impression of reality which since then we have seldom felt
in college theatricals...The vivid scenes with their song and jest and laughter,
remained in our minds and on our tongues long after we had left the gym and
scattered over the dark campus."
