Miss Lulu Bett centers on a spinster who spends her life caring for her sister's demanding family.

But once she returns she makes a choice that changes her life forever.

Gale first wrote "Miss Lulu Bett" as a novel and the same year it was published, she adapted it for the stage. David Belasco presented the original stage production that premiered at Sing Sing prison on a portable stage prior to arriving on Broadway at the Belmont Theatre. The work was made into a silent film by William C. de Mille.
