The Changelings


The Changelings
   Opening on 17 September 1923 at the Henry Miller Theatre, Lee Wilson Dodd's comedy ran for 139 performances and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. Two couples in their forties are longtime friends, but it is readily apparent that each is married to the wrong person. The balance is temporarily upset when it appears that the daughter of one couple is leaving her husband, the son of the other couple. Dodd prefaced the play with a defense of the comic value of such material, given the foibles of being human. The impressive cast included Henry Miller, Blanche Bates, Laura Hope Crews, and Ruth Chatterton.
