Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Male 3 Female

In psychiatrist Christian Faber's drawing room sits his weeping wife and his sad assistants, waiting for the siren Leonora

In four flashbacks the story emerges: Leonora, a girlhood chum, visited Christian's wife and was introduced to him

She set out to capture her friend's husband but was captured herself

She threw him over because of his jealousy

He jumped out of the window

Leonora has come because Christian calls for her on his death bed

She returns slowly from his room to announce he has died and that his last words were tender ones to his wife, for whom he mistook Leonora
