Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Margaret Mayo, born Lillian Elizabeth Slatten (November 19, 1882, Brownsville, Illinois - February 25, 1951, Ossining, New York), was an American actress, playwright and screenwriter. She is buried in St. Francis of Assisi Cemetery, Mt. Kisko, New York. Margaret Mayo was a stage actress from 1896 to 1903, when she retired from performing to devote herself to playwriting. Her earliest successes were adaptations of novels: The Marriage of William Ashe (1905) and The Jungle (1907). However, Mayo is best remembered as the author of more original plays such as Polly of the Circus (1907), Baby Mine (1910), Twin Beds (1914), and Seeing Things (1920), written with Aubrey Kennedy. She adapted several of her plays for the silent screen.show more
