    The New York City publishing world of the 1940’s is the setting for Elmer Rice’s romantic and comedic contemplation on the road less traveled. In the spirit of James Thurber’s 1939 short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, with a nod to Nick and Nora Charles of the famous Thin Man film series, we follow our heroine through a single day in her mundane life as a bookseller, which includes journeys to the wild land of her repressed Freudian urges. Eight performers bring to life 32 characters in this rollicking comedy, presented within the stunning backdrop of the sanctuary at St. Mary’s Church, Hamilton Village, on the University of Pennsylvania campus.
