Drama. By Y York. Based on the novel by Jerry Spinelli.
Cast: 2m., 3w. David has designed the perfect deal with the universe to ensure the return of his dead mother: to reach his mother "on the other side," all David has to do is enlist the help of the weirdly obtuse Primrose, daughter of the psychic Madam Dufee. Primrose needs the reluctant David to help her move from Madam Dufee's crowded garage into the abandoned van left in the yard. Perhaps being out from under Madam's constant conversation with the spirit world, Primrose will be able to make her mother tell the truth about the spirits and the old photograph of the handsome man, who is someone, but who is not Primrose's father, as Madam claims. No matter how Refrigerator John and Grandmother Margaret try to help these two outcast misfits, David and Primrose must find their salvation on their own. Area staging. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
