Full Length Play


"Chickens?" gasps Betty MacDonald when her husband Don buys a little farm in the mountains. "Who, us?" shriek teenage Anne and Joan when asked to help. But they find themselves surrounded by peeping chicks and everyone has to move fast. To Anne, with her eyes on a good-looking neighbor boy named Thad, this is fun. But how long will it remain fun to get up at four, put the coffee on, go out to the baby chicks with warm water, put toast in the oven, go out to the chicks with mash, set the table and then out to the chicks again? There is a boisterous scene when Joan, having corralled a boyfriend, entertains him under an umbrella while water drips through the leaky roof. In winter, their only entertainment is to sit with the mail-order catalog studying plumbing ads. As failure threatens the chicken farm, Betty is finally ready to give up, but there is a funny, tender scene in which they realize that they are not quitters after all. Much heartwarming comedy unfolds as they learn to cope with the Egg. One int. set. Approximate running time: 2 hours.
