Nice people

Nice people
   The 1921 comedy by Rachel Crothers opened on 3 March at the Klaw Theater and ran for 247 performances. The glamorous setting and fashions of act 1 afforded a glimpse of Park Avenue wealth tainted by the decadent behavior of three beautiful young women in their twenties, played by Francine Larrimore, Katharine Cornell, and Tallulah Bankhead. One of the flappers, Teddie, defies her father and sneaks out with a young man, Scotty. In act 2, stuck at her mother's cottage with Scotty, Teddie sees that he is only a fortune-hunter. However, her father feels that her reputation is now compromised unless she marries Scotty. Teddie refuses. Three months later, she has shown that she can sustain herself by hard work, and it remains only for her to work out an understanding with a true-blue young man who has no interest in her money.
