The Masque of La Salle College is particularly proud, in this its twenty-third year, to present as a "first showing in the Philadelphia area" a play which we believe to be one of the two or three really important dramas written in - the past ten years - The Potting Shed by Graham Greene. The Potting Shed is a unique play, for, while it contains a representative theme for our time, Mr. Greene's intention, which was to entertain, is always evident. All of the elements of a good detective story - suspense, mystery, excitement - are found in The Potting Shed, serving to bring forth the theme more vividly.
Veteran Masque patrons, we feel confident, will find in our production of The Potting Shed, that high degree of polish which has characterized so many of our past productions. Those for whom this play will serve as a first encounter with the Masque, will return, we feel equally certain, as regular patrons of the future.
