|Title:||Handbill for Joseph Jones' play, Thy will be done, at the Strand Theatre, July 29, 1925?|
|Date:||1925 July 29|
|Description:||Handbill for Joseph Jones' play, Thy Will Be Done, at the Strand Theatre, dated July 29, possibly in 1925. The front of the handbill advertises the play as the "greatest religious love drama ever staged" and lists Acme Dramatic Club stars George H. Leapheart, Elizabeth Myers, Agnes Henderson, and Leo P. Dennis. The interior of the handbill provides a synopsis of the play and features a photograph depicting the "powerful death-bed scene." The back of the handbill notes that the play is not a moving picture and the director and performers are listed with descriptions of their acting credentials underneath. Joseph Jones is described as a professional actor, writer, and producer. George H. Leapheart is described as a long-time successful theater actor who performed in Common Clay. The handbill lauds Elizabeth Myers for her portrayal of "Truth" in Everywoman, describing her as a highlight of local dramatics. Agnes Henderson is presented as a former student of Zara Brown. The handbill concludes by describing Leo P. Dennis as a local dramatic artist whose work has long been an outstanding feature. A letter from theater producer Joseph Jones dbr053 is available as part of the Douglass Theatre Web site.|
