    “Short and perfectly constructed, it builds to a quietly harrowing climax that anticipates the genteel, ironic-twist revenge tales of W. Somerset Maugham.” Henry James’s story of a woman who loses her heart and finds her dignity was transformed by the Goetzes into an enduring war horse for the stage.” It has been revived on the Broadway stage four times, at the Dance Palace "The Heiress" makes its West Marin premiere.
