The Story:The scene is a fashionable Junior College for young women, and the story shows how a sincere and intelligent alumna returns to her Alma Mater with her idealistic younger sister, who enters as a student. The director of the college, a conscientious elderly woman, is responsible to a hard-headed board of directors, one of whom has a daughter who is a student. This student, a twisted and jealous girl, uses the threat of her father's influence to throw a suspicion of guilt on two students, not to mention a servant, all of whom are innocent. One of the forms of blackmail used by the unscrupulous girl who precipitates the crisis is to force a Jewish girl, whose religion has been concealed, to do her bidding.
An exciting, fast-moving drama and a timely comment on idealism and personal ethics.
Performed by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
