Aunt Agatha sends Bertie to New York to prevent his cousin Gussie Mannering-Phipps to marry a vaudelville actress by the name of Ray Denison. When Bertie meets Gussie, he discovers that Gussie is playing on the vaudeville stage as well, Ray's father, a famous vaudeville actor himself, refusing that his daughter marries outside of the profession. Reaching a dead-end, Bertie ask Aunt Julia, Gussie's mother, to come to New York and reason with her son. But the mother used to be herself a vaudeville actress, and was turned into a respectable lady by Aunt Agatha and by force after getting married. When Aunt Julia meets Ray's father, she recognizes him as an old accointance from when she was on the stage. The man reveals that he had always been in love with her and since their are both widow(er)s, he asks her back to come back the stage and to marry him.
