Description At the core of the drawing room comedy's slim plot is the Hon. William Tatham who, having been consigned to the proverbial doghouse for a romantic indiscretion, is determined to catch his self-righteous wife in an extramarital kiss of her own, while a society grande dame attempts to snare herself a peer prone to afternoon assignations with shopgirls at the British Museum.
The play premiered on Broadway on May 21, 1923 with a cast that included Leslie Howard.
