Daddy Long Legs
by Unity Theatre

Feb. 13 - Mar. 01, 2020


Based on the novel (which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire), Daddy Long Legs is a ‘rags to riches’ tale of newfound love. Jerusha Abbot is the ‘oldest orphan in the John Grier Home’ until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she can’t know his identity so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will respond to her letters, she grows fonder of this elusive and kindly ‘old gentleman’ while another relationship begins to develop in her life. Jervis Pendleton introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure, but there is one startling fact that will change her life forever.
