Play Details

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

SET: Minimal.

NOTE: Be sure to check out the music that comes with the script. Those are the intended melodies for the two original songs, to be orchestrated however you wish.

A one-act version of this play is available; contact Playscripts for details.
