Synopsis

Old Jake is a lonely pumpkin farmer who is down on his luck, until he and his hound dog, Shoestring, find an old trunk beside the road. They take the trunk home and soon discover that it contains calico skirts that once belonged to a young mother. With every skirt—and the imaginative ways he uses them to fill his life—color begins slowly to creep back into Jake's world. When he meets the little girl who shares the secret of these skirts, he finds hope and laughter. This tale, filled with gentle humor, is both homespun and heartwarming.

Media Reviews

"A tale where a touch of beauty and softness ends by softening a man's rusty heart. Even if you don't have kids to take along, you should see this show… Playwright José Cruz González should be rewarded for having turned a…narrative by C. Anne Scott… into a witty play, allowing Scott's straight narrative to twist and bend like a wacky song…powerful wit… intense imagination. " -The Arizona Republic
