This is a sjender little comedy by Mr.
Frederick Lonsdale and first produced In
London under the "title "The Best Peo

about as much "man of It" as there is
"woman of It,"
The play deals with the experiences
of two married couples -who might be
described as society philanderers, who,
finding nothing else to do, proceed to get
themselves Into mild difficulties. The
piece has three acts, and while there are

These couples belong to the. Idle rich
class. Wife No. 1 Is considered a gad

considers her husband a brute.
Of course husband No. 1 and wife No.

other how much abused they are. The
husband waxes unduly sympathetic. His
