Book Description:
Rollo Webster, slightly eccentric, has a consuming ambition to play Hamlet. Escaping the restraining influences of his family, he spends his own money in engaging a company, hiring a theater and staging a production of the tragedy. His Ophelia is Goldie MacDuff, who would have been a success in a midnight frolic if she could only keep awake after twelve o’clock. It seems he has everything to finally bring his lifelong ambitions to fruition: a troupe of actors, a gamesome leading lady, a somewhat unscrupulous stage manager, and buckets upon buckets of cash. Now if only he had any talent… - Summary by The Best Plays of 1920-21, with additional material from ChuckW Cast List Hewston: Zames CurranLydia: TriciaGRollo Webster: Chuck WilliamsonMr. Stein: Son of the ExilesGoldie MacDuff: Devorah AllenGeorge Lucas: Tomas PeterMrs. Park-Gales: Beth ThomasWhortley Camperdown: DrPGouldThomas Skitterling: alanmapstoneAunt Lane: TJ BurnsHoratio Webster: Larry WilsonBella: Leanne YauStage Directions: ToddHWEditor: Chuck Williamson
