Florida PlayeTs open Wednes Wednesday
day Wednesday for a four day run with Mo-
Heres tour de farce, The Cheats
of Scapin, at Norman Hall Aud Auditorium.
The play, which Dircetor John

at drab Reality; the plot line
isnt nearly as important ae the
players and what they do on onstage.
The title role, Scapin, is played
by Michael Tarler.
The play, set in Naples in the
late 17th century, concerns
cheifly the wily manservant, Sca Scapin,
pin, Scapin, and four young lovera. Some Somehow
how Somehow the men find themselves be betrothed
trothed betrothed each to the other mans
girl. Scapin, sympathetic to their
dilemma, delves into his bag of
tricks to outwit two very pom pompous
