From the preface - "Democracy needs to be more vital to our youth...This play was a humble attempt to meet this need in my own work with students. The enthusiasm with which it was received by both child and adult audiences, the new horizons which the play opened up resulted in many requests for the play from teachers around the country." The play is a wonderful tool for teaching student actors about the ways democracy works.
