William A. Brady produced this four-act Owen Davis play at the Playhouse Theatre, where it opened on 7 January 1915 for 220 performances. Critics carped that the play was no better than the quickie melodramas Davis had written for producer A. H. Woods, but Davis himself considered it one of his finest works. The production was aided by Alice Brady's performance as Mary Hor-ton, a New Hampshire girl who leaves her mother for a try at New York. Her innocence is no defense for bad influences she encounters, and Mary indulges in behavior she must hide from her pious mother. When her mother becomes seriously ill, Mary returns to New Hampshire and endeavors to keep her moral lapses from her mother, despite the arrival of several of her New York friends.
