    A Touch of Frost

    by Jan Quackenbush
    • 20 - 60 minutes
    • 2 Males, 1 Female Max/Min 3

    In these three short one act plays, Wilford, from New York, finally realizes that his new neighbors–Mila, her son Klig, and husband Kulerie Klee–may not be from this planet but live on a farm next to Wilford’s newly purchased homestead – in Vermont! Their adjoining farms are separated only by a stone wall which is beginning to fall apart. What to do? Knock it down? Build it back? – and by what are they walling in and walling out?

    These three gentle one-act comedies raise a question suggested by Robert Frost himself: Before I built a wall I’d ask to know what I was walling in or walling out, a question that hints at issues of knowledge, self-recognition, bias or prejudice—or even, these days, politics.

    Small cast of 3; simple set: bare stage with a few rocks; downloadable PDF available; can be performed by high school, college, university students or groups. Excellent for touring to schools.
