Vincent at the Sam H. Harris Theatre, New York, November 24, 1924.
Acts I.--The Garden Outside the Home of Matthew
Slayton, Near Providence, R.I. Acts II and III.--The
Living Room.
Synopsis:
Mary Slayton, mother of Judith, realizes that the unyielding Puritanism of Matthew,
Judith's father, is driving the girl to desperation. Trying to make things happier for
Judith, she lets her invite her jazzy friends to the house for a party, at which they are
discovered rioting by Matthew. In the general exposure that follows Matthew learns
that, seeking sympathy and understanding through love and cocktails, Judith has
sinned but is determined not to marry the boy. Matthew seeks to force her to do so,
declaring no decent man will have her, knowing she never can be a true and loyal
wife. Wherupon Mary, the mother, dramatically informs him that when she came to him
she was in the same situation that Judith has confessed. Encouraged by her mother's
revelation, Judith runs away to marry her true sweetheart.
From The Best Plays of 1924-1925 by Burns Mantle.
