The Fool


The Fool
   Channing Pollock's sincere but turgid drama opened on 23 October 1922 at the Times Square Theatre and ran for 272 performances, while the text, published by Brentano's, went through several printings. The action pits the self-absorbed rich against the less fortunate. Young preacher Gilchrist was changed by his war service in France and is giving away his fortune, which has the unexpected side effect of alienating his fiancée. Gilchrist bull-headedly continues to do good even as his problems multiply, but the play ends on a hopeful note as he finds a soul mate in the crippled Mary Margaret.
