Her part in the first staging of Crosskeys was taken by Lilith. There had been no understudies and there was no choice in the matter. There was a scattering of applause in her first scenes, a growing crescendo of it as the play went on and then there was the greatest tribute of all. an BW«- lome silence that spoke louder than •' little i thousand handclaps. The provincial town was getting a taste of the Big Time. Avis spoke to Peg and Gavin: '*!« that girl good! And what -monkeys she's made out of us. -Holy cow! The Taller will fire <her for sure.

"The second best of your career," put in Peg, and her voice shook. "T- e best, of course. Is the one you've been giving since you came to Edgemere—•" ."Peg!" Avis took her. arm. 'You must not say such things. Lilith, she thinks—" "I know what she thinks. She's quite right. I was Lesley Gray. You've seen my picture, I take it —the one 1 gave Giles.
