Clarence Sterling was once a famous child actor—but he isn't anymore. He's now a middle-aged man who has gone a bit mad and speaks primarily in Shakespearean quotes. He lives with his sisters, Beatrice and Martha, in their big, beautiful Victorian family homestead. Times are hard, the sisters are broke, Clarence's savings from his career are gone and something must be done to make ends meet. So they decide to turn their home into an inn—The Little Emmy Inn. The centerpiece of the inn is, of course, Clarence's beloved Emmy that he won as a boy at the height of his career. Enter Leora Loot, the Sterlings' cousin and personal accountant, who has, over the years, secretly swindled Clarence and his sisters out of their savings. Leora recently also tricked Clarence into signing the house over to her, and the only way the homestead will be saved is if the sisters can make a successful go of the Little Emmy Inn. When Howard Bannister, the first customer, arrives, things are looking up, but one customer is not enough to save the homestead. Will the sisters make a go of their new business? Will Leora Loot get the inn? Will William Clancy, the pizza delivery man and certified public accountant, marry Nancy, the Sterlings' beloved niece? Will Susan Anderson, Leora's assistant, marry Howard? Will Harry, the handyman and inventor, come up with an invention to save the inn? Find out in this wacky, fast-paced mini-melodrama that is a fun-filled performance piece for middle-grade actors.
