Inventing Montana
Inventing Montana
"Full of playful humor." —Star-Gazette

"The play within the play has all the pathos, humor and vitality of a real Dickens novel ... Comedy is her forte." —The Daily Record
By Jeanne Murray Walker.

Cast: 6m., 10w. (or 3m., 3w. with doubling.) Montana Winfield seems to have everything—charisma, fame and a chair in Dickens at a fine university. But he is so driven by it all, that the wife he adores leaves him. When a stranger knocks on the door late that night with a lost Dickens manuscript, she brings with it a secret about herself. Reading the Dickens story and talking with the young woman changes Montana forever. The Montana story alternates with scenes from the Dickens novel (invented by the playwright). Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
