Ada Ingot, the lovely daughter of a well-known and wealthy city merchant, although kept in seclusion, usual to the times, is madly in love with the popular actor, and in her father's beautiful home at Marylebone Fields, has ever before her his photograph, Lord Fareleigh, having gained her father's permission, is a suitor for Ada Ingot's hand, and forces his attentions, but is repulsed, and finding that his rival is the celebrated actor, David Garrick, stamps upon his treasured photograph. Ada is indignant, Lord Fareleigh leaves, and she pleads with her father to take her to Drury Lane Theater, to see her unsuspecting lover, Garrick, in "Richard the Third." Adamant at first, her father finally consents. Ada is overjoyed and embraces her lover's photograph. Ada Ingot, with her father and Lord Fareleigh, enter to witness the play. The curtain rises, and we then see enacted the great historic battle scenes of "Richard the Third," with David Garrick as King Richard. The curtain falls and Ada Ingot, full of excitement, is seen to throw a bouquet to Dave Garrick, who is overwhelmed by her beauty. After the performance Garrick retires to his dressing-room, embracing his bouquet, having fallen desperately in love with the lady in the box. He removes his make-up, etc., and is preparing to leave, when he receives a visit from Ada Ingot's father, whom he does not know. Mr. Ingot has come to ask Garrick a great favor. "My daughter has fallen madly in love with you, Mr. Garrick. I must cure her. Will you help me?" David Garrick is asked to attend a dinner given in his honor, and to become apparently intoxicated, in order to disgust Mr. Ingot's daughter. Not knowing that the lady is his fair admirer of the box, who has given him the bouquet, Garrick consents. Mr. Ingot exits with profuse thanks, when Lord Fareleigh enters the dressing-room, and challenges Garrick to a duel for the hand of the lady who has given Garrick the flowers. Garrick accepts the challenge, and the appointment is made for the same night, Garrick remembering that beforehand he has a dinner party to attend and play a part. The host, Mr. Ingot, is entertaining his guests (a very strange lot of people) when David Garrick is announced. He is introduced all around, and lastly to the daughter of the house, Ada Ingot. He is astonished to find she is none other than the lady of the box, with whom he is madly in love. Full of remorse, he must, however, keep his promise to her father, and during dinner, in a wonderfully realistic scene, showing what a consummate actor Garrick was, he pretends to get drunk, and so violent are his gestures, that at last Ada Ingot, who is broken-hearted at his behavior, orders him out of the house. Garrick is overcome with grief, but having given his word, continues his drunken scene, and eventually leaves the house in disgrace. Before doing so he learns that Lord Fareleigh, with whom he has to fight the duel that evening, is Ada Ingot's suitor. When the moon is at its height, the rivals meet, and, with rapiers proceed with the duel. In the midst of the fight Ada Ingot (who has heard of the duel, and that of Garrick's only feigned drunkenness at the dinner) appears upon the scene with her father. Garrick has just disarmed Lord Fareleigh, and, in returning him his rapier, spares his life. David Garrick asks for Ada Ingot's hand, her father consents, and the charming romance comes to a close.
