The Keeper of the House
“The Keeper of the House”
Maria Russell Edwards
Genre: Melodrama/Play with Music/Serio-comedy
Katherine Dillman wants her inheritance from her uncle Adrien LaRoe now and will do whatever it takes to get it. She sends her son, Wendel, undercover to live at her uncle’s boarding house in order to speed things along. The problem is Uncle Adrien only boards to young women, so Wendel must pretend to be a girl for the scheme to work. Reluctant, but feeling justified, Wendel agrees to her plan to get his share. Over time, Wendel grows to like the old man, falls in love with one of the boarders, and changes his mind about the whole deal, much to the disappointment of his mother.
