The Silver Cord, according to press notes, "centers on a domineering matriarch ( Charles Busch) who is pathologically close to her sons."

Originally starring Laura Hope Crews, the play opened Dec. 26, 1926, at the Golden Theatre, running for 112 performances. Crews subsequently starred in the 1933 RKO film version with Irene Dunne, Joel McCrea and Frances Dee.
