Mrs. Leffingwell's boots


Mrs. Leffingwell's boots
   The comedy of mock innuendo by Augustus Thomas, produced by Charles Frohman, opened 11 January 1905 at the Savoy Theatre and ran for 123 performances. The play was hailed for its originality, ingenuity, and the eliciting of steady laughter throughout the action that hinges upon the discovery of the blue silk "boots" belonging to the respectable title character (played by Margaret Illington) in the bedroom of a notorious bachelor (William Courtenay). The risqué complications, generating a great deal of explanation, culminated in a satisfactorily sentimental ending.
