Lily, the Felon's Daughter

by Tom Taggart

September 29, 30, October 6, 7, 8, 1989

Plank Road School

Gay Nineties melodramas are always fun for the audiences and actors. This tear jerker tells the sad but silly story of Lily Fairweather, pure as the driven snow; of Compton, her weak but handsome sweetheart---and how villain Craven Sinclair thwarts their plans for everlasting bliss. Compton is corrupted by Craven---even succumbs to forgery and embezzlement. Our hero flees to the West leaving his father behind to go to jail for his crimes. The same fateful night, Lily's cup of woe---and the audiences cup of cheer---overflow. Adding to the merriment are a horse faced suffragette and her titled suitor who is so English it hurts.
