TWO ONE ACTS:
A Mad Breakfast by Isabel McReynolds Gray
One of the funniest one-acts ever written. Hilarious farce dealing with what happened when Jones and Miss Brown, practical jokers, told each of the guests at their boarding house that Mr. Long, a wealthy visitor, was especially interested in their individual hobbies. Long is told the house is an insane asylum. The results are a riot.
MRS SIMPKINS: the landlady; of a suspecting disposition and inclined to look on the dark side
LIZZIE: the maid-of-all-work; of a melancholy and romantic frame of mind
MISS BROWN: a young lady boarder, kind-hearted and a general favorite
MISS SMITH: another boarder, who, though a stenographer, feels that she would succeed on the stage
MISS GREEN: also a boarder and an artist, who sees “effects” in unexpected places.
MRS HILL: a boarder who has “nerves”
MR HILL: who goes in for spiritualism
MR ROBERTS: a boarder whose appetite is always good.
Mr JONES: a boarder given to practical joking.
MR LOXC: who is of an enquiring turn of mind
