Originally produced by SteppingStone Theatre For Youth Development, St. Paul, Minnesota, Richard Hitchler, Artistic Director.
Time and Place: At first May 20, 1927 in New York. The play, however, mainly focuses on the years 1911-1920. There are scenes in Minnesota, Washington D.C., Detroit, and Panama.
NOTE: This is a play about imagination and movement. The play’s conceit is that the chorus will play everything from a winter wind to parts of a Model T to the Spirit of St. Louis. The actors only need props, the more simple and elegant the better. Just like the Spirit of St. Louis!
