A play in three acts that starred the popular actor and proprietor Charles Wyndham.
Charles Wyndham was an English actor born Charles Culverwell (1837 – 1919). He first started acting when he was a young man, having decided that following in his father’s footsteps as a doctor was not his passion.
He went over to the USA to make his fame and fortune however it was during the Civil war and the need for surgeons was much greater than the need for actors so he signed up to the Union army as a surgeon. He eventually resigned from the army and made his way back to England. He became a popular actor in England and America. He accomplished a lot during his lifetime and worked alongside the top of his profession. One of the roles he became best known for was David Garrick.
