Autumn Crocus (play)
Autumn Crocus is a 1931 play by the British writer Dodie Smith. It was Smith's first play written under the pseudonym of C.L. Anthony. It follows a single schoolteacher who goes on holiday to the Tyrol and falls in love with the married owner of the hotel in which she is staying.
Directed by Basil Dean, it opened at the Lyric Theatre, London, on 6 April 1931, starring Fay Compton, Francis Lederer and Martita Hunt. Stage designs were by Gladys Calthrop. Such was its success that the management decided to put an additional 35 seats into the stalls.
