Cast: 3 M, 3 F
Performance Time: Approximately 30 minutes, 26 pgs.
MELODRAMA. Caution: The humor in this play may be a bit dry. Set in Tarantula, TX at the turn of the century, a humble well-digger, Hardrock Flint, and his soon-to-be son-in-law, Gus, have set out to strike it rich by digging wells, but all they’ve found so far is a lot of dirt. Meanwhile, the exceptionally evil Sly Snookerall has hatched a heartless scheme to steal the well-digger’s homestead, send him to the poorhouse, and then marry his beautiful daughter, Dolly. Hardrock better find a way to dig himself out of this one, or he’s going to end up at the Last Roundup Retirement Home!
