Dramatics and Arts Council will
initiate its new policy of bringing
famous artists to State College,
when it presents Cornelia Otis Skinner, celebrated monologist, in Page
Hall, October 3 at 8:15 P. M.
State College students will see
Miss Skinner In such monologues as
"Motoring in the Nineties", "Homework", the satire "Being Presented",
and the grim drama of "Lynch
Party", or "Hotel Porch".
Miss Skinner, coming from a family of actors, was meant for the
stage at the outset. After studying
at Bryn Mawr and at the Sorbonne
in Paris, she made her professional
debut with her father in Ibanez's
"Blood and Sand". Other roles in
other plays followed.
Character Sketches
But dissatisfied with this type of
acting, Miss Skinner turned to the
character sketch and originated her
Modern Monologues, which form the
basis of her career. Her success was
instantaneous. In the course of a
few years, her tours included such
famous European capitals as London, Paris, and Rome. She has played four successful engagements in
the British capital.
The ambitious Miss Skinner, seeking a still wider medium, developed
sequences of related scenes which
approach full-length plays. For example, "Edna, His Wife", her solo
drama in eleven scenes, runs as long
as a three-act play. In this sketch
she used scenery for the first time.
The talented American actress appeared this summer at the Mohawk
Drama Festival sponsored by Union
College In Schenectady. Her presentation was well received by an enthusiastic audience.
Radio and Writing
In addition to her stage work,
Miss Skinner has appeared in various radio programs. She has shown
her writing ability by contributing
humorous commentaries which appear frequently In The New Yorker
and other lending periodicals. A collection of these articles has been
published in a book entitled "Excuse It, Please!" which sold well.
She has also written another book,
called "Dithers and Jitters".
Miss Agnes Futlerer of the English Department, has acclaimed her
by saying, "Cornelia Otis Skinner
has no peer In her field." This comment is heartily echoed by Stage
magazine; "We like not only the
one woman theater, but the one
