This was a popular play in its time and is an interesting read, historically. But I wouldn't recommend it for modern audiences except perhaps adapted as a summer-resort melodrama, with its Snidely Whiplash mother fit for audience booing on multiple occasions. She and her daughter-in-law battle it out for the dubious heart of her eldest son while her younger son and his fiancee are left behind on the highway as collateral damage.
