Hear Them Hillbilly Wedding Belles
by Robert C. Yoh
Short Play / 6m, 8f
A Romp in Two Scenes. A boisterous outpouring of fun. It is the story of a hillbilly family and their friends and neighbors. Hettie, an old maid of about forty, and as sharp as they come, and her very slightly younger sister Bettie, somewhat dull, find hope in the budding romantic inclinations...
