Here is a rugged comedy-drama that will be as popular in the theatre as it was between the covers of a book. Pudd'nhead Wilson is a young lawyer who has a great sense of humor and a dry way of getting off witty sayings. He buys a cottage, and opens a law office, settling down in Dawson's Landing, a small town in Missouri. But he fails to get any clients and has to give up his office. He makes friends with Judge York Driscoll, the town's most influential citizen, who realizes Pudd'nhead's true worth. It is because of the Judge that Pudd'nhead becomes the central figure in a crime that has the local authorities running around in circles. Through the use of one of his numerous hobbies, our hero uses all his energy to track down the real criminal. After a great many futile attempts, good fortune finally smiles on Pudd'nhead and the mystery is solved and the real criminal arrested. A superb and exciting play.
