1932 Vermont comedy makes 2010 debut

When Dorothy Canfield Fisher wrote her light comedy "Tourists Accommodated" in 1932, she drew upon her quirky neighbors' experiences in rural Arlington, Vt.

Farmers, short of cash during the Great Depression, took in city guests who toured the countryside seeking a country experience, cheap antiques and home cooked meals. The vintage play follows one Vermont family that takes in tourists to raise money to send their daughter to teaching school.

"Tourists Accommodated" will be presented free by the Cavendish Community Theater Aug. 14-15 at the Cavendish Town Elementary School at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is free, donations appreciated. For further information call Sandra Russo at 226-7398.
