Peterkins, The

FARCE. The poor Peterkins! No one in the family has a lick of common sense. Seeking wisdom, the Peterkins set out to become world travelers. But when the family canít agree on a destination, they pack for every eventuality and find that their trunk is so heavy they canít carry it out of the living room! With their travel plans ruined, the family thinks itís wise to become experts on the botany of butter by watching Mr. Myersís cow. However, after a few hours of observation, all they learn is that when clover goes in one end of a cow and comes out the other end, it doesnít smell as sweet. Audiences of all ages will love this delightfully madcap play! Adapted from the childrenís novel The Peterkin Papers by Lucretia Peabody Hale.
