  • We are currently looking for a few actors for the play “Butterscotch”, by Barbara L. Smith
    A full length play, Dramatic Comedy, featuring 3m, 2f
  • The play will be presented at various local venues.

    Winner! New England New Play Competition and Festival.
  • Butterscotch is a candy yellow 1947 Ford at the center of an unlikely friendship between a New York restaurant critic and a man who loves roadside diners. The critic has come to a small Pennsylvania town to persuade his fiancee's father to attend their wedding in New York. The bride, a news correspondent off on assignment, has not even told her cantankerous, ailing father she is getting married. Adding to the bucolic fray are an elderly neighbor who has her fading eyesight on the widowed father, dad's hunting buddy and a nervous ex-New Yorker whose condo ruined a favorite hunting spot. Father and future son in law share only a dislike for each other, but the vintage car brings about a surprising end to a seemingly hopeless impasse
  • Characters:
  • LINCOLN PRICE - 40's, New York restaurant critic
    EMERY BAER - mid-70's, a rural, unpretentious senior
    ROSE "PENDY" PENDERGRASS - also 70-ish, Emery's loveable neighbor
    BOB SILER - about 40, friend of Emery's
    MITZI KELLER - 30's, another New Yorker
