Part of our unique O. Henry Series in the popular ten minute format, this play is an adaptation of one of the famous storyteller O. Henry's classic "surprise ending" short stories.
Two conmen on the run from a scam gone bad find themselves on a Midwestern farm with only a $1.66 to their names. Each tries in succession to increase their personal wealth by conning the farmer. First, Andy makes the attempt and is foiled by the farmer, Ezra’s, modern ideas and computer-savvy ways. Jeff is dismayed by Andy’s failure, but decides to make his own attempt. Will Ezra, who seems to know every trick in the book, be drawn in by Jeff’s practiced patter?
