Description Written in 1923. "Lonsdale's play is a slight drawing room comedy centred round the genteel infidelities of its central younger characters". 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.
