Love lets your spirits depart!
We meet novelist Billy Magee who has made a bet that he can write a 10,000 word story in just 24 hours. He retires to a summer mountain resort, Baldpate Inn, in the dead of winter, locking himself in with what he believes is the sole key. Throughout the night, he is visited by a succession of melodramatic types, including a corrupt politician, a crooked cop, a hermit, a feisty female reporter, & a gang of criminals. To Billy’s surprise, there actually appear to be seven keys to Baldpate… Written in 1913 by George M. Cohan of American Song Book fame —The Yankee Doodle Boy, You’re a Grand Old Flag, & Over There to name a few —Seven Keys to Baldpate is a comedic mystery play full of melodrama, satire & farce with twists, turns, & laughs that audiences are sure to love!
