Set in the 1920s and inspired by silent film comedies, this is the latest big hit from LMU Presidential Professor of Theatre Arts (and Pulitzer Prize-winner) Beth Henley. In it, she tells the story of Mabel, who is left wealthy but orphaned after a dynamite accident at a gold mine. Her luck worsens as she is shipped off to a calculating aunt, whose nephew is charged with seducing Mabel to gain control of her fortune. This hapless courtship reveals a shared love of silent movies and a plan for greater things.
