Hallie Flanagan, who had come to Vassar in 1925 as professor of English, was made director of the Experimental Theatre.  “She experimented in form, in historical revival, and in current issues; in original student plays and in the original Greek….  To the love of acting she added an intellectual criticism and a social drive, making us believe that the theatre was a natural vehicle for confronting the community with the facts of the time.”     Henry Noble MacCracken, The Hickory Limb
