The Talker

The Talker
   Opening on 8 January 1912 at the Harris Theatre, the woman suffrage comedy written and directed by Marion Fairfax ran for 144 performances. Pauline Lord played the title role, supported by Tully Marshall (Fairfax's husband). Henry B. Harris produced it. The press trumpeted the play as a portrait of the "new woman," but Fairfax described her heroine as a woman who "swings midway between the old woman who is happy and content in her home and fills an economical place in her world, and the new woman, who has had the courage to carve out a place for herself in the present business world" (Rochester Times, 14 October 1912).
