May, who described herself as having 'play-fever
badly' tried her own hand as a dramatist. Her play Lady Griselda's Dream
appeared in Longmans Magazine in June 189811 and a second, White Lies. A Play
in Oue Act, was privately printed by the Chiswick Press in 1903.
William disliked plays as he got older but acted in Socialist entertainments and was said to be a brilliant mimic. Jane loved plays but seldom went with her husband who often made very loud remarks on the play or actors.
