Costumes, 1909. The literate and charming comedy of manners which delighted New York audiences for months. The play has to do with a middle-aged and repressed English spinster who is sent to America to live with her aunt in the hope of finding a husband. Rhoda is secretly in love with her second cousin who treats her as a confidant, with condescension and misappraisal of her virtues. He fancies himself in love with a slightly tarnished young actress. But Rhoda, homely and sedate as she is, has feminine resources far greater than has the younger and more superficially glamorous woman. There is a secondary love story - that of an adolescent girl for a Don Juan much older than herself - and this story is beautifully depicted. There are also a number of amusing domestic crises, some anti-macassar conventions, some decorous philandering on the sly, and a rousing and very funny brawl involving two of the ladies. The quick, witty and subtle dialogue is a delight in itself - polished and graceful.
"A superb achievement ... a perfect comedy." - New York World-Telegram
