The Twilight Butler

In Charlotte Dent, The Twilight Butler is a 1918 play by Dalton Winslow. Charlotte is cast by Kyle Matthias in a small role in a doomed-to-be-terrible local-theater production of the play. When the leading lady, Erica Fallow, quits unexpectedly, Charlotte is bumped up to her role. The play is cancelled shortly before performances begin.

Later, Charlotte will view a performance of the play in London, with her ex-boyfriend Simon Oliver in the lead role (and his new girlfriend, Camille Caldwell, in Charlotte's former role).
