She plays the part of a Park Avenue society girl, who, while desiring the love of her special -young man-about-town, objects to his* insistence that they conform to convention and marry, fearing that the ceremony will be the end of romance. Tho she finally does consent to marry, it is with many scruples. That the calamity she feared did happen, may be well Imagined but what happened after she went back, to live In her own apartment to regain her individuality--and what didn't happen--is the gist of one of the most consistently entertaining .plays of the year.
