The Banker's Dilemma


Cleve Haubold

Published by Samuel French Inc

2 Male 2 Female

One-act farce ...

Banker Van Bludgeon roars into Widder Twilly's store to collect the money owed him, or bounce her and her son, Norman, out into the street

The stagecoach from Ponca City deposits a veiled and hysterical young maiden - Dorothea - into the Twilly store

Norman sets out to raise money by peddling his stock of crocheted doorstops, but rapidly gets tangled up in a hilarious plot which involves the entire cast

When the dust settles, the Banker and the Widder are making eyes at each other, Norman and Dorothea are holding hands, and the store is saved
