FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

Lady Pitts has had a checkered career. In a Soho restaurant she is creating an uproarious scene. Her Apollo is knocked cold by her chauffeur-attendant when he rushes gallantly but injudiciously to her aid. In the second act we see the lady surrounded at her home by the restaurant guests whom she had unwittingly invited. We see also the unfolding of her young admirer's passion, and his deflation by sensible old Sir Joseph. In the last act, back in the restaurant, Apollo sees Daphne again. But she has not become a laurel-bush. On the contrary, Sir Jos is dead, and his widow has married her chauffeur-attendant. It is a black hour for the ardent young Apollo, and we doubt whether the wisdom which now falls from the lips of a no-longer-drunken goddess really reconciles him to his loss. Produced by Leland Hayward and Merman Shumlin in association with Sir Laurence Olivier at the Music Box Theatre, with Dame Edith Evans in the starring role.
