Stewart Camby has spent two years writing and polishing his play, and now rehearsals are beginning. But Talbot Potter, the lead actor, insists that Camby change the play to suit his private agenda. Talbot is smitten with Wanda Malone, the ingenue, and wants her character in the play to fall in love with his--paralleling what he hopes will happen in real life. It isn\'t long before Camby\'s dramatic masterpiece is in shambles, with hilarious results and a surprising twist at the end. This publication from Boomer Books is specially designed and typeset for comfortable reading.

If I'd missed this one, I might never have had another. It frightens me to think of it-- and I oughtn't to be thinking of it! I ought to be spending all my time on my knees thanking God that old Mr. Packer got it into his head that 'The Little Minister' was a play about the Baptists!"
