The Gator of Glen Ridge

The Gator of Glen Ridge
The Gator of Glen Ridge


 Peace and harmony in the Borough of Glen Ridge turns to chaos when a pet alligator named Willie slips his leash and runs free throughout the town. We follow two neighbors, Mrs. Snowden and Mrs. Marsden who want to subdue the reptile and seek help from the haughty Mrs. Upper-Montclair, the inept Mayor Rude, the nature-loving Chief Watchung and the sea-faring Admiral Sampson. In this ‘Chicken Little’-type children’s play, excitement builds as Mrs. Snowden, Mrs. Marsden and their coterie of followers seek to find the right person to find and capture, what they believe is a vicious alligator. The group finds their “Gator Hunter” and a confrontation ensues with Willie the Gator. But a surprise twist occurs at the play’s conclusion with a happily-ever-after ending for everyone. Well, almost everyone. Very loosely based on a true story as reported by the New York Times in 1905, The Gator of Glen Ridge, was written as a quirky, light-hearted, play.
