Summary expansion
Written by John Steven McGroarty at the prompting of Frank Miller, proprietor of the Glenwood Mission Inn, the three-act play presented the history of California. beginning with the Portola expedition of 1769 in Act I, the flowering of the California mission system under Father Junipero Serra in Act II, and a lament for the loss of the missions in Act III, which takes place in 1844 amidst the ruins of San Juan Capistrano. The play was funded by leading Southern California businessmen, including Henry Huntington, Henry Chandler, and Edward Doheny, and was first produced in 1912, to great acclaim. For a detailed history of the Mission Play, see William Deverell, Whitewashed adobe: the rise of Los Angeles and the remaking of its Mexican past (Univ. of Calif. Press, 2004), especially pages 211-226
