This light comedy, a classic in England, might be characterized as a WIND IN THE WILLOWS for older students and adults.


GRANDPA BEN GRANDPA BEN
Available from playwright
Ages 5 and up.

One act, Ben Franklin's study, 7m, 3f. It is July 4, 1787, the time of the Constitutional Convention. Ben needs to get to the State House to set things straight before the fighting among the delegates destroys our chance to make a united nation out of thirteen separate colonies.

The show presents a delightful way for children to get acquainted with one of our country's great men, and to understand something about the impact he had on our nation's history.
