Alice Gerstenberg's popular one-act play exploiting the craze for Freudian psychology was produced by the Washington Square Players, opening on 8 November 1915, on a bill with three other one-acts. The four-woMAN cast comprises the cultured Harriet and her primitive self Hetty, the cultured Margaret and her primitive self Maggie. Harriet married for money and is jealous of Margaret's marriage to a painter who has reportedly earned success. She is eager to have her portrait painted by him, but hides that motive when Margaret comes to tea. Margaret puts up a good front to hide the fact that she and her husband are starving and that she is desperate to get Harriet to sit for a portrait.
