Or The Chopping Block

By Jacob M. Appel

Directed by Coleman

Judge Gwendolyn Gage’s two daughters have both fallen in love—but neither relationship is exactly what the fifty-five-year-old divorcee had in mind. Her older daughter, Lily, has announced her intention to marry a Republican. Her younger daughter, Laurel, has developed a romantic infatuation with a poplar tree. If the matches are to succeed, both girls have their work cut out for them.
