Young Mary Call Luther has spunk, guts, spirit—call it what you will—and she needs them if she’s to keep her family together after the death of her father. To do this, she has to hide her father’s death from the county welfare, from Kiser Pease, their landlord, and from the townspeople. Kiser wants to marry Devola, Mary Call’s older sister, a dreamy, quiet, deceptively retiring girl. Keeping Kiser Pease and the townsfolk at bay lets everyone in for some hilarious tricks and ruses that keep the play moving with action and suspense.
