The setting of the play is at Grover's Corners, N. H., and the lirst act outlines the history of the town. The 2nd act culminates in a wedding scene and the 3rd has its setting in the town cemetery with many of the former townspeople there a w a i t i n g , not "judgment,'' but a greaier under- landing. Costuming is of the period of aOO to 100-1. Attics of Clear Lake esidcnts have been ransacked to ibtain the proper types of clolh- ng, hats and shoes for the various characters.
