The Patsy

The Patsy
   Opening on 23 December 1925 at Booth's Theatre, the three-act domestic comedy by Barry Conners ran for 242 performances and was nominated for the Pultizer Prize. The title refers to the henpecked husband whose wife and elder daughter make his life miserable. They are also cruel to the Cinderella-like younger daughter, Patricia, but she remains generous and decent, ultimately to win from her sister the man she truly loves. Her father finally learns to stand up to his wife, after which he comes into a happy-ending bundle of money.
