An up to date version of Bret Harte's novel. "M'Liss" is the lovable, quick witted, quick tempered, untutored child of the West. Her love for her no account father; her affection for her friends---as well as her outbursts against enemies---form the basis for a fast moving play. There are great parts for everyone---including Clara Hunting, a mystery woman from the city, who figures in the adventures besetting M'liss'; Clytie Moffit, a sweet thing M'liss is jealous of due to the young schoolmaster's attentions to Clytie; Bess Starlight, a dazzling actress who tours the mining towns with her troupe. Easy to cast and play with a very simple set.
