"This play was written by Dodie Smith. Earlier Dorothy had appeared in her play "Autumn Crocus" when she used the nom du theatre C.L. Anthony. During our run Dorothy was so ill the only thing I remember is that somehow dear Lucille Watson managed to give me the courage to continue working." (Miss Lillian Gish - Dorothy and Lillian Gish)
