Drama Club News!!!
The Royal Players are proud to announce our production of Oh, Promise Me!. This comedy is in the style of the classic screwball comedies of the 1930s.
Barry Hollis has just graduated from Princeton and has come into the fortune left him in his late father’s will. He has as a playboy, but is resolved to settle down now and become a worthy member of the community. On the train back from Princeton he meets and falls immediately in love with Gladys Vance. He persuades his aunt to send Gladys a note inviting her for a visit. Another note goes to Patsie Linden, an old flame of Barry’s, asking her to send back his frat pin. Alas, the notes get mixed! Patsie arrives with her mother and threatens a breach of promise suit unless Barry marries her immediately. Then Barry has a bright idea: He couldn’t marry if he had a wife and family already. He gets Ann Furber, the butler’s daughter, to pretend to be his wife – and he “borrows” a baby. Gladys, the light of his life, arrives and Barry’s in an awful pickle! He has to convince Patsie he is married and Gladys he isn’t married at the same time. Complication piles on complication with a surprise on every page and a laugh in every line. The climax comes after Barry is arrested for kidnapping the baby.
