Garland Anderson's play about an African American hotel bellhop wrongfully accused of raping a white woman opened on 13 October 1925 and ran for 23 performances at the Frolic Theatre, toured two years, and was revived in New York in 1929. Somewhat heavy-handed in its insistence that by hard work and honest living "any man can do what he desires to do, can become anything he desires to be," the action culminates in a trial scene. When the bellhop Carl is vindicated, he dismisses all the characters as figments of his dream.
