Synopsis:
Appolonia Lee from Kansas is in New York determined to go on the stage. Down to
her last cent and still without a job she listens to the advice of a fellow sufferer, Dot
Norton of the chorus. The only thing that can help a girl in New York, Dot argues, is
a man's influence. So Appolonia goes in search of a man. She finds one in the
person of the titled but unhappily married Le Marquis de Severac and frankly asks
his help. Charmed by her innocence, and also the curve of her neck, he agrees to
help. He organizes a dinner party and invites a vulgar producer of plays and his
large, blonde wife. Appolonia is disillusioned and later saved by Richard Warrington,
an hoest young sculptor.
From The Best Plays of 1924-1925 by Burns Mantle.
