Excerpt: ... CLARENCE ACT I Scene.--The time is any day, now-a-days. A room in the President's suite of offices of an impressive financial Institution, on the top floor of the Institution's building in Nassau Street, New York. This is not a business play; but the details follow actuality. There are no maps on the walls, no signs on the doors, no papers on the table, there is no token of business, or of any other form of activity. There is almost nothing in the room, which is in two shades of brown--a "dull-finish" wood paneling up to seven or eight feet on all four walls, and above that a "dull-finish" plaster. The back wall is broken by a door c., the r. wall has a fireplace c, and a mantel of brown wood, in type with the paneling, with a clock upon it. There is a second door; it is in the r. wall c. Against the back wall are two high-backed settles, or upholstered benches with backs, one up r. the other up L., flanking the door c., and another such settle is placed at right angles with the r. wall, and just up of the fireplace r.c. Another settle is placed at right angles to this one, and facing the fire, forming an L shape nook. These settles are uniformly upholstered in dull green stuff. There is a chair, similarly upholstered, near the fireplace, down R. there is a 5 chair at a small table up L. The table is of dull wood; plain and expensive--with nothing on it. Another chair, similar L.c. A fire burn's in the fireplace, but no coal-hod or fire-irons are seen. When this fire is tended, a person in uniform brings the implements with him and takes them away with him when he goes. (As such a person, however, will not be shown in the play, the matter could be explained to the critics between the acts, in the lobby of the theatre.) No one is seen for a moment or two. ...
