Act I.--Living room in the Tovey's Home.
Act II. -- The Court Room
Act III -- Living room in Leonora's Home.
Staged by Edward Elsner.
Leonora, being an old-fashioned mother, requests a fellow traveler to clost the
window of their compartment because her daughter Milly has a sniffy cold. The
Traveler refuses and Leonora pushes him off the train, closing the window
herself. She is arrested, charlged with murder and brought to trial, but she so
charms the judge and jury that she easily convinces them of the justice of her
act and is triumphantly acquitted.
