In the rip-roaring 1920’s, a daydreaming businessman named Edward feels trapped amid the hustle and bustle of city life. Inspired by the example of Dirty Dan, the self-proclaimed “king of the bums”, Edward wants to forsake the rat race and start a new life in a teepee in the woods. But going against the grain brings on the resistance of his fiancee, his family, the corporate world, and a political machine. Why won’t society just let him be a bum?
Are you with (or know someone who’s with) a theater company, school, or performing arts organization? If so, then I want you to produce my musical. For free. This family-friendly comedy is great for all ages and can be easily adapted for almost any venue. I don’t require any royalties or payments of any kind. All I want is to to get this show out there, and nothing will help more than getting it produced. Just let me know when and where!
