This is a play about three sisters—Flora, Dora and Nora Weerd—who make a living telling fortunes by the means described in the title of the play. When we first meet them, they are barely scraping along with hardly enough money to pay their only servant, Jessie. In fact, they have barely enough to finance the leaves in the bottom of a teacup. Actually, they are dreadful fortunetellers, and then along comes the mysterious Lady M. She wants news of the future and she wants it right away. Suddenly, Flora, then Dora, then Nora get the gift of "sight" and they seem to be able to tell what's in store with uncanny accuracy. As we all know, no good comes of meddling with such things but the satisfaction here is in finding how it comes out. This is a fun play for both cast and audience with good roles for women.
