Abstract:

Based on a story by Booth Tarkington. A journalist new to a Midwestern state capitol circa 1900 notices there is something funny going on at the charming house next door. Turns out gubernatorial candidate David Beasley lives there with his young ward, an orphan who has a menagerie of imaginary friends. Beasley's nemesis Simeon Peck plans to ruin Beasley's chances at the statehouse, but everyone learns something at Beasley's Christmas Party -- including the pretty Miss Applethwaite, whom Mr. Beasley spurned years before. Conceived for three actors to play multiple roles (but playable in many configurations), this 75-minute holiday play is a heartwarming fable of imagination and celebration.
