Fairfax, Marion

(1879-1970)
   She was born Marion Neiswanger in Richmond, Virginia, acted for about a decade, and married character actor Tully Marshall. The pretty little playwright told an interviewer (Cleveland Plain Dealer, 23 July 1911) that she had once aspired to a career as an engineer but that a woman's choices were limited. Taking the role of women as her constant theme, she had four plays produced in New York, beginning with The Builders (1907) in which she and her husband both performed to mixed reviews. The Chaperon (1909) starred Maxine Elliott. Her best comedy, The Talker (1912), ran for 144 performances with starring roles for Marshall and Pauline Lord. She also wrote A Modern Girl (1914) with Ruth C. Mitchell.
