Overview

According to Atkinson (Times), a play "of many moods�wistfully romantic, satirical, fantastic�To make his points about love (the author) has invented a fable about twin brothers�Frederic, who is shy and sensitive, and Hugo, who is heartless and aggressive. Frederic is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer who masquerades as a mysterious personage and becomes the triumph of the occasion. She is a susceptible maiden in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical romances that have been going on before she arrived, but loses her own heart as well."

Editorial Reviews

London times
...an enchanting little fairy tale of laughing...grace, its sentiment masked by cool, brittle, elegant mockery.
NY Herald-Tribune
...[a] lovely and delectable trifle.
