THE POPPET-DOLL

Daddy aims to cyarve out a poppet for his babe.

All the long day

He must fare away
Putting in a corn-crap, perviding for his babe.

Lonesome for a human to kindly help you play ?

Nary little brother,

Nary loving mother.
Poppet might look human, and shorten up the day.

from “Kinfolks, Kentucky Mountain Rhymes” by Ann Cobb, 1922

The Mad for the Farthing Crowd was pleased to send the beautiful Adelle Zabaglione as their representative to Southern Broadway’s newest production, “Hawkins Pass”. Set in the mountains of Kentucky during the Great Depression, “Hawkins Pass” is a heart-warming tale of romance, adversity and love of unique community. Oh! And moonshine – can’t forget the ‘shine.  A delicious supper of preceded the show, and Adelle enjoyed the admiration of the diners as she was passed from person to person before the first course was served.

It was a delightful change of pace for the usually retiring Mrs. Z. The good food, company and music allowed her to remember sweetly her long-ago Kentucky heritage. She returned home to her wooden sisters, thankful for such a special evening.
