Opened 9 October
"Children Without a
Home" is a melodrama in two acts and sixteen scenes.
It was produced at the Hopkinson, and subsequently
it was staged at the Mitre Theatre in Buenos Aires,
Argentina (with Berta Gerstin) and on tours in the
United States. It was originally written and
broadcast as a radio play.
According to a review
in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper in 1943, the
play is "based on the author's recent Jewish radio
feature of the same name.... the play tells a
thrilling, human story of twin sisters, who, as a
result of the war turmoil and the treachery of their
mother's old love rival, become 'living orphans.'
The unfortunate family is separated and harassed by
the scheming of a bitter, jealous woman, until fate
takes a hand and finally rights a great wrong."
