    "Though this play of The Millionairess does not pretend to be anything more than a comedy of humorous and curious contemporary characters such as Ben Jonson might write were he alive now, yet it raises a question that has troubled human life and moulded human society since the creation" (Preface, 1935). A play about the gaps between rich and poor, later made into a popular 1960 film starring Peter Sellars and Sophia Loren.
