"Meeting held at 64 Northcourt Avenue 25.1.43<br/>     S. A. Reynolds in the chair. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 2. Minutes of the last meeting were read and signed <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 6. The rest of the evening was spent reading “The Taming of the Shrew” reputed to be by William Shakespeare. Bruce Dilks took the part of Petruchio which he read with all the dash and vigour of the practised Shrew Tamer. Muriel Stevens read the part of the Shrew, but her natural characteristics also showed through her interpretation of the part and she was rather more convincing after she had been tamed than before. The summing up in the last scene, of the wife’s duty to her husband was warmly applauded by all the gentle men present — Other parts were read, all most adequately as follows: <br/> <br/>Baptista —    Howard Smith. <br/>Vincentio    S. A. Reynolds <br/>Lucentio    Kenneth Nicholson <br/>Gremio    F. E. Pollard <br/>Hortensio    R. D. L. Moore <br/>Tranio    Margaret Dilks <br/>Biondello    Ruth Beck <br/>Grumio    A. G. Joselin <br/>Curtis    Mary S. W. Pollard <br/>Bianca    Elsie Harrod <br/>Widow    Rosamund Wallis <br/> <br/> The thanks of all were expressed to Alice Joselin for cutting and casting the play and she hastened to assure us that it had been done only with the assistance and approbation of her lord and master."
