The headstrong, spoiled daughter of the privileged Philadelphia Lords, Tracy Lord is divorced from C.K. Dexter Haven and engaged to a successful young snob. A society weekly sends a reporter and female photographer to cover the wedding arrangements. Tracy finds herself growing interested in the reporter Mike Connor, and following the pre-wedding bash, they take a moonlight swim and are then surprised by Dexter and the fiancé. The following morning her intended smugly forgives her, enraging Tracy, who breaks off the engagement. Connor offers to marry her, but she turns him down and remarries Dexter, the real love of her life, after all.

This is a production of the Newtown Arts Company.For additional information about this show, please call 215-860-7058 or email
