A Barrel Full of Pennies

Author(s):
John  Patrick

In the household of Adonis Samaritan, cab driver and lover of mankind, all homeless creatures, dogs, lame ducks and people--are welcome, much to the distress of daughter Alicia, who wishes she didnít have to be embarrassed at the thought of inviting her elegant boyfriend, Milton, to dinner. But plans are made, only to be jeopardized by the arrival of still another "stray," a self-proclaimed folk singer named Alvin, whom Adonis brings home to join "Cousin" Lu, "Uncle" Nemo, and the assorted animals quartered in the cellar. Despite the best intentions of Adonis and his wife, Mina, to have things go smoothly, they go, as luck would have it, quite the opposite, and the complications multiply hilariously. In the end Milton (who never does show up) is forgotten about in the turmoil while Alvin (who shows up better than expected) proves that love will find a way--and, what is more important, that the wild and wonderful lifestyle of the Samaritans has found a new champion to keep it spinning along merrily for many years to come.
