The Last Leaf
The Last Leaf
By William Glennon. Suggested by O. Henry's story.

Cast: 2m., 2w. Sally and Beth, fresh out of art school, live in a crowded attic in Greenwich Village. Determined to break through the barriers of a male-dominated art world at the turn of the century, they share their good humor and hopes with Tom, the building custodian, and something of an artist himself. Enter Harold, a personable young doctor, newly established in his father's old place just off Washington Square and now anxious to continue an interest he once had in drawing. Sally's unflagging determination finally lands them all a bit of space for their very own gallery, when, without warning, a pneumonia epidemic strikes the Village—including one of our friends—and everything is suddenly changed. Who might come to the rescue? And what happens when the last leaf on the old tree outside falls? What begins as a genial comedy grows much richer, becoming a thought-provoking rumination on the meaning of friendship. One int. set.
