The House of Mirth

   Clyde Fitch adapted Edith Wharton's novel about Lily Bart (played by Fay Davis), whose hopes for love are thwarted by the vicious machinations of the New York social scene. Fitch's adaptation, which opened on 22 October 1906 at the Savoy Theatre, produced by Charles Frohman, achieved only 14 performances, proving a rare failure for Fitch.
