Petunia Passes • A Short Play

Petunia Passes • A Short Play

by Thomas F. Rogers

(For production by ALL Church Groups, Community Groups)

Finances and family activities are examined when the ‘family car’ is totaled and the family faces no transportation. What is essential? What can be done without? What is best to be sacrificed? The questions are answered as a family realizes what is important. It is both a funny and heartfelt examination of the modern LDS Family.
