The wisdom of Eve : a play in three acts by Mary Orr( Book )

3 editions published between 1964 and 1972 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from the story by Mary Orr, on which the film and the hit musical APPLAUSE were based. An engrossing and revealing "inside" story of life in New York's theatre world, told in terms of an unscrupulous ingenue's rise to Broadway stardom. When we first meet Eve Harrington she is standing in the rain by the stage door of the theatre in which the renowned Margo Crane is starring in her latest long-run hit. Waiting for a glimpse of her professed idol she accosts Karen Roberts, Margo's good friend and the wife of the playwright, Lloyd Roberts, and inveigles an invitation to meet the great actress herself. The meeting leads to unexpected opportunity as Margo, struck with Eve's "sincerity," takes her on as a personal secretary. Before long Eve has done such a fine job of straightening out the clutter of Margo's personal affairs that Margo, while she had always jealously resisted the engagement of an understudy for her own role, allows Eve to have the assignment. Then Eve begins to move ahead in earnest, her true character emerging as she lies, cheats and blackmails her way to Broadway stardom and then a Hollywood career leaving the wreckage of her friends' trust behind her. As the play ends there are rumors that Eve has found a new "friend," this time a movie tycoon, so it appears that perhaps we have not, for the moment, heard all there is to tell about Eve

Jessamine Linnett and her husband, Andrew, are typical Americans. Each has a daughter from a former marriage. The story begins with the two girls' return from college. Jackie, Andrew's daughter, and Joy, Jessamine's, are fond of each other. But Joy's attractiveness runs to beauty so apparent that Jackie's charm is overshadowed. Jackie is taken aback with the realization that her one suitor, Warren, is dazzled by Joy. When Jackie gets no bid to the dance there follow riotous attempts to secure an escort for her, resulting in nothing more than funny arguments between Jessamine and Andrew over their respective daughters, and their communication with each other only through the medium of both girls. Jackie decided to take matters into her own hands when Warren, who has proposed to Joy and been turned down, turns to her for solace. Jackie's way of getting her man is drastic, but entirely successful
