Mrs. Stout discovers the photograph of an actress in her husband's pocket. As a punishment the culprit is forced to peel potatoes and do other tasks equally agreeable for the rest of the day. Later, at the earnest request of the theater manager, Mr. Stout, who is a prominent actor, is released upon his promise of "good behavior" and allowed to go to his work. Soon after he has departed, Mrs. Stout becomes anxious and decides to make sure that he keeps his word. The good woman arrives at the theater in time to see an act of "Anthony and Cleopatra." All goes well until she believes that her husband is a little too realistic in bestowing his caresses. Rushing upon the stage, she "sails in," and things look bad for "Cleopatra" and some of the others until the firemen, who are called to the scene, turn the hose upon the rioters and literally wash them away.

Released in the US as a split reel along with the comedy L'invulnerabile (1912).
