The Potters

   J. P. McEvoy's three-act comedy, produced by Richard Herndon, opened on 8 December 1923 at the Plymouth Theatre for 245 performances. Feisty Ma Potter nags her nebbish husband, Pa, about his meager paycheck. Pushed to action, Pa invests in an oil speculation. To complicate matters, their daughter Mamie elopes, but a surprise gusher in Pa's oil field stifles Ma's complaints. Critics found that the innocuous plot was bolstered by McEvoy's charmingly believable depiction of the title family, a quality carried over to a 1927 silent motion picture version starring W. C. Fields.
