Synopsis

An evening of three one-act plays, including Hope Is the Thing with Feathers by Richard Harrity, Celebration by Horton Foote and Afternoon Storm by E.P. Conkle.

In Hope Is the Thing with Feathers, a group of tramps and vagabonds comically struggle to catch a duke in Central Park pond and cook it.

In Celebration, a brother and sister return to their Texas hometown from college to a party thrown by their alcoholic, black-sheep older sister.

In Afternoon Storm, Abe Lincoln takes a walk to calm his nerves before marrying Mary Todd.
