By: R. Eugene Jackson
Cast: 7 M, 8 F, 1 girl, extras
Performance Time: Approximately 70-80 minutes, 68 pgs.
HISTORY/COMEDY. Told with warmth and plenty of down-home humor, this play chronicles Davy Crockett’s early life (1801-1804) in a series of easy-to-stage scenes. The story features Davy’s life at the Crockett family tavern, Davy’s wilderness adventures after he runs away from home, and Davy’s return to Tennessee and his engagement to Polly Finley. There’s also a delightful town dance and Davy’s infamous recitation of an ill-written love poem, which he devised to win Mary Hutch’s heart. Davy Crockett is best known as a frontiersman, congressman, storyteller, and author, but it was Davy’s early years that laid the foundation for his place in American history.
