While a boy watches boiling lentils for his mother, six people pass: the condemned Queen (who he promises to hide), the Mime (who tempts him abandon his duty), the Milkmaid (who tells him about the reward offered for the Queen), the Blindman (who shows him why it is best to keep a promise), the Ballad Singer (who would wander all his life rather than break a promise) and the dreadful Hangman (who is outwitted by the boy). Her majesty gratefully knights David the Little Boy (who has done his duty and kept his promise).
Six Who Pass While the Lentils Boil was first presented at Christodora House in New York City on July 14, 1915. The play was subsequently presented at Jordan Hall in Boston, Massachusetts, on February 14, 1916. The play received its official New York premiere at 39th Street Theatre in New York City on November 27, 1916.
