- This four-act comedy by Max Marcin opened on 9 August 1916 at the Eltinge Theatre for 286 performances, produced by A. H. Woods. Nan Carey brings together a group of thieves in support of her scheme to pose as the wealthy Brockton family so that she may befriend the rich Palmers and steal their jewels. It turns out that the Palmers are also a gang of crooks trying the same scheme. Ferris, an unseen detective, dogs the actions of both groups, but it is ultimately revealed that Nan is Ferris, and she arrests both gangs. Marjorie Rambeau's performance won admiration from critics and the play had a long life in stock.
