The Passing of the Third Floor Back tells the story of a boarding house and its inhabitants. Once more the Arden Club performs a play that had only recently been written-this particular play being written in 1908. The Arden Club may have been inspired to perform this play after the 1918 film adaptation but the play continued to hold popularity until the second adaptation in 1935. Unlike the traditional plays that generally have remained more timeless and recognizable to present day, the Arden Club seemed to explore plays that were less widely known and more so relevant to the current era.
