About the Play
The show begins at the Old Homestead where “our Nell” is enticed by the villain to go to New York and sing in a fine music hall. The second act is at a Bowery honky-tonk where she makes her New York debut. Then back at the Old Homestead, “our Nell,” having endured many trials and tribulations, comes home after walking from the railroad station through a terrible storm. And — happy end — she’s still “pure as the driven snow!” 9m, 6w, extras
Adrift in New York or Her First False Step – a melodrama of the Gay Nineties by Addison Aulger. From The Dramatic Publishing Company with 1961 the latest copyright. This paperback script measures about 7-1/4″ x 5″ and has 93 numbered pages in staple binding.
See photo above. I’m starting this listing with 5 scripts which are all used and vary in type/quantity of markings. Some have highlighter on the lines, some have light pencil markings. First buyer gets choice. I will communicate with buyer to get his/her choice of character/markings before shipping. From clean, smoke-free theatrical home.
Generally I mail orders the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will back this with one piece of box cardboard (to help prevent the Post Office from bending it), wrap it in plastic wrap (to help protect the item from moisture or torn packaging), then send inside a manila envelope (or brown paper) when sent via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. This is the cheapest postage option that includes both item protection and tracking. See the shipping page to give you an estimate on the cost of a First Class Light package. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
