Play description

Creepy mystery thriller of the ‘Yellow Peril’ variety. On its first appearance, in 1923, writer credit went only to John G Brandon. The authorship question, and the extent to which George Pickett had to adapt the play for West End presentation, eventually resulted in Brandon bringing an unsuccessful libel action against Pickett in 1931.
