Annabelle, a travelling actress, declares the life of her profession to be "loud, crazy, glaring, senseless and stupid" yet claims that should not prevent her from "being completely sincere." Tonight, Annabelle is in St. Louis, asking her most recent beau, Richard, to marry her, and Richard employs all defenses – putting on records, taking trips to the kitchen, and even calling a neighbor to come down from upstairs – to change the subject. Yet when Richard's neighbor Paul comes to the supposed rescue, Annabelle's passion proves as flexible and entrancing as her artistic craft.
