An old and proud family, the Dales of Dalesford, Connecticut, is faced with a major crisis which threatens to disrupt the traditions upheld by their ancestors. Instead of giving up, the spirits of the Dale ancestors return to combat the un-American forces which seek to break up the family. The living members of the family - with the help of their ancestors - try to keep their old house from falling into the hands of supernatural apparitions (a captain in the World War, officers of the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, Moll Flanders and Harriet Beecher Stowe) that mingle with the living family in scenes that both impress and amuse. --www.tracycostumes.com The play is described elsewhere as "a study of the democratic past and its inheritors of the present day confronted by new intolerances and new forms of self-interest. The play concerns the efforts made by the younger members of an old Connecticut family to prevent their father from selling his estate to a Nazi bund, his business to a fat monopoly... [The story is] an affirmation of the American way of life, and [is] a call to the democratic colors."
