period romantic play


No better place for Sophie Vaughan than Aunt Plumy’s farmhouse in Vermont to spend the Christmas holidays and to decide whether she should marry Mr. Hammond, her millionaire suitor or wait for her true hero. The warmth of the family, the beauty of the landscape and the genuine simple ways of country life impress her immensely and when her friends, Emily and Leonard arrive, the merriment is complete in this period romantic play.

While they all make plans for the big day, the city people find out that they have a lot to learn from the country folks’ genuine ways and realize the importance of simple values that are easily missed in the bustle and hustle of city life.

Of course, true love finds its way, and Sophie soon realizes who her heart belongs to.

This play is an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s “A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS”
