Storyline

The current Plot on site reads:The adventures of an actor on tour, resting upon the intriguing theme that you can cure a person of his prejudice by extending him the flattery of comparing him to an actor." That leaves out a very important piece of the plot...it is built upon the theme that...a person can be cured of his prejudice..."against actors"...by extending him the flattery of comparing him to an actor. In this instance the prejudiced one is a clergyman, and a touring actor, with the help of the clergyman's wife, cures him. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
