The Summer of Jack London
The Summer of Jack London
By Andrew J. Fenady.

Cast: large and flexible. Strong, handsome, aspiring writer, young Jack London debarks from a hell-ship, North Star, commanded by vicious Captain Diequest, with a diary about the murderous voyage. On dry land Diequest taunts London into a primitive battle and loses. So begins London's most adventurous and romantic summer. His family destitute, Jack fights a bully to get backbreaking work shoveling coal. All day he works; at night he writes. London rescues a young dandy, Philip Bambridge, from muggers and falls in love with Bambridge's sister, beautiful, delicate Felicity—and she with him. But all forces conspire against them. London finishes the novel exposing Diequest, but Diequest plots to shanghai him. In a rollicking dockside fight and harrowing escape the only copy of the novel is destroyed. Gold strike in Alaska! Jack London must decide between his love of Felicity and his love of adventure—Alaska—writing—the call of the wild. Area staging.
