  • Miss Beadle allows the class to put on small plays in groups and rarely have I been so bored.

    Miss Beadle decides that the children will learn more about literature and working as a team by putting on short plays for the parents, she doesn't realise what she is getting herself in for. The girls (Nellie, Mary, Laura and a young girl named Ginny) agree to do "Little Women". Naturally, Nellie wants the lead and, of course, Mrs. Oleson who has visited a 'real theatre', decides to write the parts for each of the girls.

    Willie, meanwhile, has some problems getting the boys to work with him on his chosen play, "Tom Sawyer".

    The only shining light for me in this entire banal episode was the young actress who played Ginny because she did a great job of someone battling a bad stutter and a widowed mother who doesn't seem to care much about her. I don't find the rest worth mentioning except to say that I almost fell asleep.
