OLD JAKE'S SKIRTS

Annual Theatre for Young Audiences Production 
Adapted by José Cruz González
From the Book by C. Anne Scott

Old Jake is a lonely pumpkin farmer, until he and his dog find an old trunk filled with calico skirts beside the road. They take the trunk home and with every skirt—and the imaginative ways he uses them—color begins to slowly creep back into Jake's world.
