Saturday's children

   Opening on 26 January 1927 at Booth Theatre, Maxwell Anderson's comedy ran for 310 performances. Guthrie McClintic* directed Ruth Gordon* and Roger Pryor as the young married couple trying to live on $40 a week, because the man insists that his bride quit her job as a stenographer and let him support her. The situation occurs in a number of plays of the decade, including The First Year by Frank Craven, Tarnish by Gilbert Emery, and Two Girls Wanted by Gladys Unger. Anderson's treatment of the subject brings the couple to divorce, so that they can then live as individuals and recapture the romance of their relationship.
