A novel published in 1930. The story is about George the wandering flautist and young Nellie Ems.

Eirene Fearon (Millar) turned "Piping George" into a play and offered it to an agent.

The Gordons made the following extract from a response about the offered play:

"To Mr FEARON
I herewith return your 'play' ...
I think the less said about it the better. Surely the fire would be the best place to put it.
I cannot understand the mentality that could consider anything so vulgar and so sordid ...
The person who wrote Piping George would be better employed sweeping the streets.
Yours truly,
MAY MARLOWE"

- as told in The London Roundabout.

The play was, however, broadcast on Midland Regional at 8.30 pm, performed by the Coventry Repertory Company.
