About the Play:

Mrs. Harper's Bazaar is a one-act farce by Babette Hughes. This amusing farce lampoons a woman's organization and a charity bazaar. Amusing incidents occurring during a bazaar for the benefit of a needy mountain school in Kentucky. Mrs. Harper's Bazaar is a natural for girls' groups and women's clubs.

Mrs. Harper's Bazaar takes place in a small room off the ballroom of The Pineview Hotel in Pineview, Washington at 10 o'clock at night. Reveals the exciting amusement incident to a charity bazaar presided over by Mrs. Harper, who has enough troubles this one evening to keep the audience laughing for a long time. Most of the action centers around Honey Walters, a movie star who is to make a personal appearance at the bazaar, and who goes on strike when she discovers that she is expected to unveil the statue of a mule – symbol of the charitable activity of these clubwomen, who raise money to provide mules on which the poor children of Kentucky may ride to school.

Mrs. Harper's Bazaar was first performed in 1937 at the Studio Theater, University of Washington in Seattle. Since then the play has been mounted by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.
