Description Tells the story of Rose Trelawny, a popular star of melodramas. Rose gives up the stage when she marries her sweetheart, Arthur Gower, in order to please his conservative family. She finds life with Arthur's parents, Sir William and Lady Traflagar, unbearably dull and they detest her loud and unrestrained personality. Rose runs back to the theatre, abandoning Arthur. But her experience of the 'real world' has killed her talent for melodrama, and she cannot recapture the liveliness that had made her a star. Meanwhile, Arthur has secretly run away to become an actor at the Bristol Old Vic.
