Strolling Players

  • Edwin S. Porter

Summary

Of a troupe of strolling players our picture tells, it presents the manners and customs of other times in a vivid manner. We are transported to the age of romance, when players were classed with gypsies and vagabonds. The young lord of a manor becomes interested in a kindly, sympathetic way, in the wife of one of the players, the manager of the troupe. She is a refined, gentle and delicate creature, while he is a drunkard and bully. Unknown to the rustic audience before whom they play, a real drama is enacted in larger proportions. But, in the end, we see retribution meted out to the guilty, the innocent protected and virtue triumphant.
