A Play by CLIFFORD BAX
' I expect honest Strowan every day from
Brussels, with whom I shall have the honour of drinking to your illustrious family, as I had-with the worthy Earl of Nithsdale, at his passing here on his way to Lille, where his deservedly immortal lady has joined him.' September 25, 1716
Characters in order of their appearance :
The Play produced by E. J. KING BULL
London. February, 1716. 'The Fifteen' rebellion is broken, the Pretender fled to Rome, and the first of the Hanoverians safe at St. James' under Walpole's realistic care. In the Tower three Jacobites, Kenmure, Nithsdale, and Derwentwater, await execution, condemned on a charge of treason. In this desperate emergency Lady Nithsdale plans her heroic attempt to secure her husband's escape. In the telling of this famous story Clifford Bax achieves a romantic drama of great charm: he uses the technique he so successfully employed in Socrates and The Rose Without a Thorn, the dialogue being written in modern idiom and not in artificial ' period language., This slight, but workmanlike, piece should give a great deal of pleasure. It was first produced at the Royalty Theatre in October, 1931.
