Show Guide: 'Thanks'

Post by: AYS Staff 25 November, 2020

Synopsis: Set in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621, this comedy centers on the story of shopkeeper Jim Winthrop and his family. It's a struggle in the new world, especially when the new settlement can't decide between religious freedom and eating a regular basis.

Jim and his wife Polly are determined to make a go of their small store, while their 14-yr-old daughter Abigail just wants to meet a boy. 10-year-old Elizabeth has an unnerving ability to see into the future and Cotton is a loyal friend-even if he is the village idiot.
