Characters in order of their appearance
The Scene is the parlour of Beach House.
Teignmouth, in Devon, and here the young widow, Mrs. Calthorpe, is faced with the remarkable choice of freedom and comparative poverty or wealth and marriage with an unknown suitor from Canada. The result is a little nerve-racking for all concerned, but none the less highly entertaining, and the first act should stimulate many Plymouth listeners to see the play and find out for themselves how the problem is solved.
