PlayKit | The Hundred Dresses
by Mary Hall Surface
based on the novel by Eleanor Estes
Wanda Petronski just wants to join the fun of having friends like everyone else. But in 1930’s small town America, a Polish immigrant doesn’t easily fit in. When Maddie’s best friend Peggy starts to tease Wanda, Maddie knows it isn’t right. When the teasing doesn’t stop and the Petronskis move to get away from the town’s prejudices, Maddie is wracked with guilt. She soon realized that allowing her friend to be a bully can be just as bad as acting that way herself. Determined not to let her fear get the best of her again, Maddie braves the scorn of her classmates and stands up to them, making an unlikely friend in the process.
“Everyone has been in Maddie’s situation. Everyone has faced peer pressure. These characters tell us that we, like them, can make the right choice next time.” –Teen Tix, Seattle
“What sets the play…apart is its quiet, unexaggerated depiction of xenophobia, and how poverty comes in different sizes and shades.” –The Seattle Times
