"Mr. Keene, Try Another Chair?"

Charles Hale Hoyt, born in 1859, was a brilliant farcical comedy writer who entitled virtually every one of his plays beginning with A to bump his name to the top of whatever list he appeared on. He wrote his farces till he passed far too soon at the age of 41 in 1900.
