By Ray Bradbury.
Cast: 10m., 5w., 6 to 15 extras, doubling possible. Set in the "down home" locale of Green Town, Illinois, Dandelion Wine is a moving play in which 38-year-old Doug Spaulding must uncork the most wrenching summer of his childhood in order to free himself of the loneliness that has been bottled up in his heart for the last 23 years. He does this by going back in time to June 1938, arriving as Mr. Forrester, a stranger to Green Town. He befriends Douglas, his bright-eyed teenage self, and together they relive those days of time machines, the "wonderful Para Litefoot tennis sneakers," and his grandfather's cellar full of dandelion wine. By doing this, Spaulding hopes he can rediscover what will once again put "music in his ears and magic in his eyes"...as it will in the ears and eyes of your audiences. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
