Presented on Broadway. The N.Y. Daily News said: "A DISTANT BELL... is a fascinating play which takes several unexpected twists and turns—imaginative, lucid, unhackneyed and very often beautiful. .. This is a play which cannot be given a label, for some of it is whimsical, some of it glows with human warmth and some of it is tragic. I recommend it because of these varied qualities, which somehow come and fit together . . .A DISTANT BELL starts out as the story of a woman who returns to her home after ten years in a rest home. This woman is an imaginative lady . . . Being a great reader, she named her first daughter Barrett for Elizabeth Barrett Browning and the second Waverly for Scott's Waverly novels. The third girl would have been named Pickwick, but the father asserted himself and gave her a family name of Flagg ... In the next two acts, A DISTANT BELL turns gradually and deftly to tragedy as one of the daughters experiences an emotional upset such as the mother once had ... This is good, individual theatre and I admire it."
