Winner of numerous play competitions, this is a bright and breezy farce about a very calm family of very odd habits. Sixteen year old Daisy comes across Spike, a burglar, rifling through the contents of a desk. "You'll never find anything in that desk. We never can." Daisy would just as soon have Spike take her sister's money. She's saving for a guitar and the whole family dreads the results. Then Ada suggests that Mother ought to meet Spike as she's writing a mystery and wants to get to know a good burglar. But Mother is full of criticisms: "Why aren't you wearing gloves? What would you give for an alibi? Where did you park your car?" A lively, extremely funny concoction.
Nobody Sleeps was originally presented at the Gila Junior College Little Theatre in Thatcher, Arizona. It was directed by W Clayton Kauffman.
