Christmas is eagerly awaited by Lulu, a young girl living in a small Wisconsin town during the Great Depression. Anticipation is transformed into anxiety when Daddy loses his job, doubts about Santa flicker, and that Shirley Temple doll seems further away than ever. Mama reveals her own brutal Christmas as an orphan, adding new worries. But it's Lulu's deep faith and vibrant hope that keeps her looking forward to each new day and the glorious gift of Christmas. In her touching memoir, Ludmilla Bollow, an award-winning playwright and novelist, recounts the year before her family's toughest Christmas. There's a haunting encounter with freaks at a circus sideshow, the heartbreaking loss of the town's recluse who was committed to finding true love, a disastrous Thanksgiving at Grandma's, and, of course, the long-awaited Christmas! Lulu's spirit of love and joy radiates throughout this emotive recall of family life during hard times.

American history before and after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 Providing a balanced, realistic picture of a time rife with hardships, The Great Depression for Kids brings the era and key concepts to life. Kids learn about the harsh realities that most Americans could not escape, such as massive unemployment, natural disasters, and economic collapse. They also learn that the 1930s were a time when neighbors helped neighbors; sports figures behaved admirably; and an army of young men rebuilt the nation's forests, roads, and parks. Librarians delivered books on horseback, a curly-haired child star charmed moviegoers to "stand up and cheer" in the darkest of days, and a little African American girl became the first of her race to participate in the National Spelling Bee. Beginning with an in-depth look at the 1920s, the book builds readers' background knowledge to help set the stage for the decline of the economy over the next decade. Twenty-one crosscurricular activities help kids learn how to research, buy, and sell stocks; use scientific methods to conduct a survey, re-create Depression glassware; and much more.

4f and 9 extras (can be doubled) / Comedy / Interior This contemporary comedy reveals the hopes, dreams and fears of three elderly ladies who spark their lonely lives by meeting daily in the rest room lounge of an outdated downtown department store, and the crazy/touching events that occur the day one of them is supposedly threatened. There s Myrah, with a fighting spirit that totters into the absurd; Violet, a leftover from the days of elegance; and Winifred, a wisp of a woman who wanders in and out of reality. A steady stream of bizarre events occur as the ladies seek to protect Winifred from being taken away by her sister Clare, leading to a blockade of the rest room and a final triumph over those who would threaten their fragile freedom. Winner of the Southeastern Theatre Conference New Play Award "The women are wonderful characters...[the play does] an excellent job of balancing humor against the basically pathetic lives of the three main characters." - Minneapolis Tribune "A very funny play of character and situations. You can't get much better than that writingwise: check out William Shakespeare..." - Appleton Post Crescent "Visit to Rosenblooms is worth the trip. Quirky characters, punchy lines and light hearted humor." - Driftwood News, Canada "Hilarious one minute and surpisingly touching the next." - Gallery Theatre, California "Maybe the best comedy is the one that makes you cry. This Ludmilla Bollow script is an almost perfect example of the classic dramatic unities of time and place." - Neenah Post Crescent "It's comedy, but has very poignant moments in it as well." -
