Overview

Judy is a pretty drudge in a New England orphanage. One day a visiting trustee becomes interested in her and decides to give her a chance. She does not know the name of her benefactor, but simply calls him Daddy Long Legs. She writes him letters brimming over with fun and affection. From the home she goes to a fashionable college where a romance develops that constitutes much of the play's charm. The orphans appear only in the first act and may be played by small girls of any age.
