By Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman

The scene is Mrs. Orcutt's boarding house, where the hopes and ambitions of sixteen young women who have come to New York to study acting and find jobs are revealed in scenes of entertaining comedy. Juxtaposed with this are the stories of the girl without talent and the elderly actress whose days are over. The central plot has to do with courageous Terry Randall, who fights against discouragement to a position in the theater where we are sure she will conquer. One of her fellow aspirants gives up in despair, one gets married, and one goes into pictures, but Terry, with the help of idealistic David Kingsley, sticks to her guns. Color and contrast are offered by Mattie, the maid; Frank her husband; a few young men callers, a movie magnate and young Keith Burgess, the playwright who "goes Hollywood."

A comedic valentine to aspiring actresses everywhere.

Stage Door is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
