“Passion Play of Washington Square”

17 min. A sketch played by five people including Alma Tell in the principal role. It is a splendidly written play around an entirely new theme with a surprise finish. There is plenty of comedy lines which kept the audience amused and the finish is so cleverly concealed as to keep those in front in doubt right up to the finish. It held close attention and was liberally applauded. This was Alma Tell’s first appearance in the principal role and she gave a very excellent performance.
