Ian Hay AKA John Hay Beith
Four Male Two Female
One Act Comedy
Running time 25 minutes
A word of warning about Ian Hay - He was a prolific novelist with his name on a dozen plays, but most of his writing involved co-authors. For example full length comedy "Little Ladyship" 1914 was adapted from a Hungarian Novel by a writer called Stella who died in 1967 - meaning that the play is still in copyright, and this applies to most of his dramatic works, but there are a few exceptions worth following up.
Born in Sydney
Six Male Four Female (One younger of each gender)
Filmed in 1920 by Equitable Motion Pictures Corp. Three of his other plays were also filmed. Captain swift was filmed twice in 1914 and 1920. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0150292
