Item details

Israel Petrie, called Old Verily because he has been a fervent street-corner preacher for forty-years, is a domestic tyrant. Now a widower he dominates his two daughters. Things reach a crisis when he forbids the younger daughter to marry because her fiance doesn't agree with his loud-voiced preaching and castigating. But the elder daughter, gaining a courage she has lacked for years, exposes her father for an act of cruelty to her mother long ago. A powerful play that will have a deep impression on the audience. It has been accepted for publication in George G. Harrup and Co.'s volume The Best One-Act Plays of the Year.
