Comedy. Dramatized by Ruth Perry. From Eudora Welty's story.
Cast: 3m., 7w. Lily Daw is young, pretty—perhaps more than a little peculiar—and in love! However, the well-meaning ladies of the Helping Hand Society are determined to see Lily off to the State Home for the Feeble-Minded. They just don't believe her when she says she's planning to be married this very day. The ladies certainly do have grounds of concern. Lily has always had an odd imagination, and the man she's describing now is a "show fellow." One thing is clear to the ladies—the faster they can get Lily committed, the better. They urgently try to get her consent. As they're winning her over, a "show fellow" appears and actually wants to marry Lily. Area staging. Approximate running time: 35 minutes.
