Clarence (School Play)- Playbill

A Comedy in Four Acts
By Booth Tarkington
Presented by
Tuesday, May 26th 1925
Eight O’clock

ACT 1–Anteroom to Mr. Wheeler’s private office.
ACT II–Living room of Mr. Wheeler’s home; three weeks later.
ACT III–The same that evening.
ACT IV–The same next morning.

Clarence has no medals, no shoulder bars, no great accomplishments. One of the “five millions,” he served where he was sent-though it was no further than Texas. As an entomologist he found- on this side of the ocean, no field for his special in the Great War. So they sent him to driving mules. Now, reduced to civil life, and seeking a job, he finds a position in the home of one Wheeler, a wealthy Englewood man with a family. And because he’d “been in the army,” he becomes guide, philosopher and friend to members of that agitated and distracted family group. Clarence’s position is an anomalous one. He mends the bathroom plumbing, he tunes the piano, he plays the saxophone, and all around him revolves such a group of characters as only “Booth Tarkington” could offer.

Act. II. A newspaper office in Sullivan, S. C. Four months later. The Gold Bug

Act III. Same as Act II, a few hours later. The Code Message

Act IV. Same as Act III, ten days later. The Buried Treasure

The Gold Bug is a modern comedy telling the story of a gay young man in New York—how his millions palled on him —how he became penniless—how he tried to work for himself—how he was defeated and how he came back—how he sacrificed all his wealth for honor and how his sacrifice was rewarded.
William Legrand learns that his grandfather has disinherited him and starts out to carve his own way to fortune. He starts a little newspaper in a small town in South Carolina but only meets with slight success. A tempting offer is made him to enter a dishonorable business, but he decides to win or lose his own way in an honest manner. He finds a mysterious code message and succeeds in locating a chest of treasure buried years before by the pirates.
