Houdini the playwright?

Here's a curiosity I encountered while doing research on Houdini in the 1920s. This news item ran in several papers and reports that Houdini had written a stage play. 

Dayton Daily News, May 18, 1924.

Of course, Houdini wrote short playlets to copyright his effects. But the last one of those was written in 1914. This sounds like something more substantial and something he hoped to get produced. So is there a lost Houdini stage play out there?

Just one to file away until we can find another piece of this latest Houdini puzzle.

UPDATE: Looks like we have that next piece of the puzzle, and it's wild! Read: The Grim Game on stage?
