Second Mrs. Tanqueray

Book cover
By: (1855-1934)

Aubrey Tanqueray marries a woman with a past which he believes will not matter in society. "I know you think me a fool, Cayley—you needn't infer that I'm a coward into the bargain. No! I know what I'm doing, and I do it deliberately, defiantly. I'm alone; I injure no living soul by the step I'm going to take; and so you can't urge the one argument which might restrain me. Of course, I don't expect you to think compassionately, fairly even, of the woman whom I—whom I am drawn to— [] Thanks. I've heard you say that from forty till fifty a man is at heart either a stoic or a satyr. [] I am neither. I have a temperate, honourable affection for Mrs. Jarman. She has never met a man who has treated her well—I intend to treat her well. That's all. And in a few years, Cayley, if you've not quite forsaken me, I'll prove to you that it's possible to rear a life of happiness, of good repute, on a—miserable foundation." - Summary From the Play Cast list: Aubrey Tanqueray: ToddHW Paula Tanqueray, his wife: Beth Thomas Ellean Tanqueray, Aubrey's daughter: Leanne Yau Cayley Drummle: Tomas Peter Mrs. Cortelyon: Sonia Captain Hugh Ardale: Jason in Panama Gordon Jayne, MD: Son of the Exiles Frank Misquith, QC, MP: DrPGould Sir George Orreyed, Bart: alanmapstone Lady Orreyed: TJ Burns Morse: Jessie Percival Servant: Roger Melin Stage Directions: Availle Edited by: ToddHW
