This is the bright and lively story of a charming miss. Penny has her own way of looking at the world - and her own means of attaining her own ends. She has modern parents, who look terribly old-fashioned to Penny and her friends. Says Penny: "Father has the quaint idea that I must learn by experience. But what he has never learned by experience is that my experience is inevitably harder on him than it is on me." She then proceeds to demonstrate, and the havoc that she raises makes for three action-filled, fun-provoking acts. What she does, in all sly innocence, is stir up a feud between the boys and the girls of the school, a feud that spreads into the whole town, and into her father's newspaper office. She is amazed at the conflict she finds and she herself becomes enmeshed in it - to the chagrin of her boyfriends, girlfriends, parents, faculty and neighbors. As the other plays written by the Hayes team, the main theme is explored in sub-plots that offer excellent roles and a chance for a director to stage an unusual and captivating production. Newspaper readers all over the country have taken 'Penny' to heart; now theatre audiences will have the same opportunity.
