Though only running about 12 minutes, this Edison comedy was criticized for being "too drawn out." A clergyman takes umbrage at the fact that a local theater is staging a melodrama titled "Why Girls Leave Home." Receiving an advertisement for the play, he angrily tosses it in the wastebasket. The ad is retrieved by his daughter, who soon alerts everyone in the household. Sneaking past the snoozing clergyman, his daughter, her sweetheart and their servants all attend the evening's performance of "Why Girls Leave Home"--which is staged in a mock melodramatic manner, designed to elicit derisive laughter from the movie audience.
