About the Play

Little Nell and the Mortgage Foreclosure is a delightful melodrama replete with broad comedy, memorable characters, and plenty of booing and hissing for the stovepipe-hat-wearing villain!

Nell Pureheart and her wise old Auntie Nora are about to lose the family homestead to unscrupulous banker Wiley Whiplash. Whiplash will forgive the mortgage under one condition: Nell must marry him!

Nell and Nora call on heroic Casey Cleandeed to save the day. Unfortunately, despite his recent law degree, he's not very bright. The play follows a side-splitting trail of intrigue and deception until the truth about the homestead is finally revealed!

Customer Comments

I adore Little Nell and the Mortgage Foreclosure.
It's clever and easy to mount so stuff doesn't get in the way of the posturing and plot, and has twists to bring it into the 21st century.

Thank you for trying to bring it back by giving it a facelift and jokes everyone can understand. My actors found your dialogue easy to master because it makes sense and flows.
