The Two orphans


The Two orphans
   A French play about two sisters, one of them blind, both caught up in the French Revolution, had a number of English-language versions and became one of the most frequently performed melodramas of the last decades of the nineteenth century. In 1904, producer George C. Tyler revived the old warhorse in a touring production with an all-star cast that included James O'Neill, Louis James, Grace George, Clara Morris, Thomas Meighan, Sarah Cowell Lemoyne, and Sarah Truex. It was a last sentimental revisiting of the already moribund genre.
