Photo Details

For faking the presence of ghosts, comic dialog in one act
Chapbook cover shows a scene from a play: a man sits on the edge of a bed, hunched over, with his hand in a chamber pot. A child, under the bed, pushes the man's bottom with a broom. There are also two brushes floating above the bed. The script concerns the ploys of a boy faking the presence of ghosts to deceive his father.
