Adrift in New York (or Her First False Step)
Adrift in New York (or Her First False Step)
By Addison Aulger.

Cast: 9m., 6w. (extras.) Here's the best Gay Nineties melodrama we've seen, and the more seriously your actors play it, the more humorous your audience will find it! This marvelous show had a long and highly successful national tour, receiving excellent reviews as it was presented more than a thousand times. The playwright has put the fruit of all this experience into the playbook for your use. The show begins at the Old Homestead where "our Nell" is enticed by the villain to go to New York and sing in a fine music hall. The second act is at a Bowery honky-tonk where she makes her New York debut. Then back at the Old Homestead, "our Nell," having endured many trials and tribulations, comes home after walking from the railroad station through a terrible storm. And—happy end—she's still "pure as the driven snow!" Two int. sets. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
