Mr. Pim Passes By and He Should Have Kept Going

The acting edition of Mr. Pim passes by; a comedy in three acts by A. A. MilneWhat's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of author A.A. Milne?  Winnie-the-Pooh, right?  That's what I thought, too, until I learned that Mr. Milne was also the author of many plays.  So I decided to read Mr. Pim Passes By; a comedy in three acts and upon completion exclaimed, "Oh bother."

Words of wisdom - if Mr. Pim shows up on your doorstep, don't let him in.  Tell him he has the wrong house, and to visit your least favorite neighbor.  That's what they should have done in the Marden household when Mr. Pim showed up and his brief visit turned their world on end for, well, a day, but what a day of trouble it was!

Mr. Pim Passes By is a silly story and pretty quick to read.  If you're looking for something quick and quirky, give this play a spin.
