A Pearl of Great Price

By Agnes Adam


Item attributes


Item details

Peter, a man of peace, is married to Sarah, a widow, who completely dominates him. He is very long-suffering, but reaches the end of his tether when Sarah makes him a complete suit of clothes. Her former husband, a sea-faring man, supposed to have been drowned ten years ago, turns up when Peter is alone in the house. The two husbands have a heart to heart talk and the problem is, which of the two is to remain with Sarah, who considers herself a "pearl of great price". Neither wants to remain but Peter finally agrees, but with knowledge in his possession which, as the sailor points out, will make him "captain" of the ship and Sarah a mere "deck hand". A hilarious comedy with good scope for character acting.
