Gloria Bouvier is a Southern housewife and devoted (some might say demented) stage mother of great determination. As the hour draws near for the premiere of the annual elementary school production of The Nutcracker, Gloria tries every ploy she can think of in order to manipulate Jim Clark, a beleaguered schoolteacher (and the play’s director) into giving her daughter a starring role in the production. In the spirit of Light up the Sky and You Can’t Take it With You, this fast-paced, whimsical comedy is filled with eccentric characters, has several great roles for kids, and puts a fun-spirited, quirky spin on the holidays.

Published in 5 Easy Pieces: More One-Act Plays.
