Purlie Victorious: A Comedy in Three Acts
The story of a black preacher who returns home to rural Georgia to claim an inheritance and bring down Ol' Cap'n Stonewall Jackson Cotchipee, the ruthless plantation owner that he once served. Accompanying Purlie is Miss Lutiebelle Jenkins, a pretty young girl, who Purlie persuades to convince Cotchipee that she is the long-lost relative entitled to the family inheritance. But, the plot goes awry and Purlie finds a surprise ally in Cotchipee's son, Charlie, a progressive Southern gentleman who eventually helps Purlie emerge victorious.
