4 Male 4 Female

The enigmatic Mrs Smith, living in a remote part of England with her housekeeper, finds herself once again subjected to suspicion in connection with a murder case in which she was tried years before, and from which she was discharged, the verdict being "not proven"

All would have been well if her son had not fallen in love with the daughter of a newspaper man who in his youth had covered the trial, and now suspects Mrs Smith. The play becomes a battle between Mrs. Smith and her housekeeper, on the one hand, and those, on the other, who are determined to see in Mrs Smith the accused murderess

But just as Mrs Smith faces what seems like defeat, she courageously - fighting for her son's happiness - turns the tables on her opponents, persuades her oppressors that the marriage should take place, and eventually justifies herself

A very effective psychological drama, produced in New York and London. Has proved widely popular with colleges and little theatres
