The Three of us
   Rachel Crothers had her first Broadway success when this four-act drama opened on 17 October 1906 for 227 performances at the Madison Square Theatre. The play focuses on Rhy Macchesney, who, with her two brothers, owns the rich "Three of Us" mine in Nevada. Rhy's fiancé Stephen Townley hears of a richer load and tells Rhy. One of Rhy's brothers overhears the conversation and hands the information over to a speculator. Stephen thinks Rhy has betrayed him, but eventually learns otherwise. A silent motion picture adaptation was released in 1914.
