Based on Robert Neilson Stephens' On the Bowery, this stage success depicts wild and wicked deeds. This version is easy to rehearse and produce, but misses none of the fun and thrills. Mrs. Drayton wishes her daughter Alice to marry villainous Thurlow Bleekman but she loves reporter Jack Hobart. The Drayton mansion is robbed and Bleekman blames Jack, forcing him to prowl the Bowery dressed as a Chinese waiter amid the riff raf who congregate at Brody's. Meanwhile, Bleekman's girlfriend threatens to reveal his true character if he does not marry her. In the play's funniest scene the villain engages burglars to toss the troublesome girl from the Brooklyn Bridge. The villain meets his liar's doom, Jack and Alice marry, and a lost daughter and mother are reunited while the laughter rolls on. Optional olio acts can add to the hilarity.
