The Testing: A Play in Four Acts (Classic Reprint)
Scene - Handsome reception room in J. Taylor Karlton's apartment. Everything about the room is elegant and in good taste. A double door at back, center, through which may be seen a wide hall, handsomely furnished, and a glimpse of a room beyond. Right of door, chair, a table on which is syphon, glasses, cigars and cigarettes, and beyond this another chair. A fireplace, right upper, filled with potted plants in flower. On mantel a photograph of charming woman, together with several tall ornaments. Lower right, low bookcases. Beyond fireplace right, set diagonally and out from wall, a sofa, with armchair near it. Left of door, center, a chair, an easy chair near large window curtained with lace, which is so draped that a glimpse of Central Park is seen. A tea table, several chairs near it, up left. A large table, left center, on which are writing materials and magazines. An armchair and two others, near table.
Time - About four o'clock on a spring afternoon.
Enter Jackson as curtain rises.
Jackson. (Ushering in Helen Latrave, a stylish, handsomely dressed girl of about twenty-two.) Mr. Karlton will be in directly.
Helen Latrave. (Looking about, pauses as if undecided about remaining, and speaks, in a surprised, anxious tone.) Mrs. Sherwin was to be here.
Jackson. Mrs. Sherwin just 'phoned, Miss, that she'll be here shortly, and for you to please wait. (Takes paper from large table, left center, and hands it to Miss Latrave.) This is the evening paper if you care to look at it.
