by Frances Hodgson Burnett

From the writer of The Secret Garden and The Little Princes comes this highly entertaining and unique play. Peter Piper and the others of his doll family face a crisis when their owner receives a present of a new dolls’ house built like a castle. The old fashion dolls along with Racketty-Packetty House are to be banished to the cellar, or worse, burned up. Frances Hodgson Burnett has written a truly imaginative play hailed by critics as “clever” and “charming.” Produced on Broadway by George C. Tyler.
