the Silver cord

   The Theatre Guild production opened on 20 December 1926 at the John Golden Theatre and ran for 130 performances. Sidney Howard's gripping portrait of a possessive, domineering mother (played by Laura Hope Crews) owed much to Freudian psychology. When her two adult sons bring home a wife and a fiancée to meet her, she begins maneuvering to drive the women away and keep her sons under her wing. But the wife proves a worthy opponent and manages to keep the elder son as her husband, while the younger son caves in to life with mother.
