Hunt the Tiger (Henry A. Hering)
Scene: Paris. The drawing-room in the house of Mons. Jules
Time: December, 1781
The plot of this play holds the elements of decided novelty. Mons. Jules has conceived the most thrilling and remarkable form of sport for the entertainment of those who have lost interest in life and are prepared to accept an exciting and sporting way out of it. He finds would-be suicides in the streets of Paris, invited them to his flat, and then suggests his novel way of relieving them of the burden of life.
