Out there

   J. Hartley Manners wrote this three-act play for his wife, Laurette Taylor, but it also featured Lynn Fontanne in an early role. Produced by George C. Tyler in collaboration with A. L. Erlanger and Marc Klaw, Out There opened at the Globe Theatre on 27 March 1917 for 80 performances. Inspired by the tragedies of World War I, which the United States entered shortly after the play opened, Taylor played a Cockney girl living in London slums and facing the deprivations of the Great War. For the benefit of the Red Cross, a week-long Broadway run with an all-star cast, led by Taylor, George M. Cohan, Minnie Maddern Fiske, Beryl Mercer, George Arliss, Helen Ware, Julia Arthur, James K. Hackett, Chauncey Olcott, H. B. Warner, George Mac-Farlane, O. P. Heggie, Elenora de Cisneros, Burr McIntosh, and De Wolf Hopper was presented, followed by a three-week tour of major American cities.
