One-act play based on a story by O. Henry - a tale of trickery and double-crossing. Two sets (or one composite set) plus front-of-curtain scene at a railway station.
As the twentieth century dawns, the United States of America is the land of opportunity. There are plenty of ways to make a quick buck, but the quickest and biggest bucks are made by the scam artists. Having a conscience is a bit of a handicap for confidence trickster Jeff Peters. He decides against the advice of his business partner to include a real woman in his marriage agency scam. Will he find out that women are the honest sex, or will he discover that a woman can be the equal of a man in dishonesty? Will he break the habit of a lifetime, and trust a bank? In this tale of cross and double-cross, who gets the loot?
