Gildy is a little upset that the ladies group is planning a play in his home, but he has been barred from the meeting. It doesn’t take long for Marjorie to fill him in on the plans, and he soon has a finger in the production. A play for everybody is settled on, set in the old plantation days in the south, and a cast is soon put together.
After a few words over the judge not delivering his lines well, Gildy decides he could play the part better. Though he already cast himself as the villain, he takes on the second role. Another cast member, Mel Blanc, has a family emergency, and soon Gildy is faced with three parts. He can manage this, it’s just the dress rehearsal.
The night of the play arrives, and Gildy is still holding the bag. Comedy multiplies when he deals with quick costume changes from villain, to cultured old grand father, to the blackface of the stable hand. How’s he holding up? What do the critics in the audience think of the play?
