About The Price of Thomas Scott:

Mr. Scott and his wife, son and daughter have long hoped to sell the declining family business so they can pursue dreams now out of reach. When a buyer finally appears and makes a rich offer—Scott hesitates. If he sells, the old shop will become a dance hall—and Thomas Scott believes that dancing is immoral. The Price of Thomas Scott poses probing questions about prejudice, principles, pretense and progress. Whether you find Thomas Scott inspiring or enraging—you’re sure to find Elizabeth Baker’s drama entertaining and provocative.

Our The Price of Thomas Scott Review

While there’s nothing terribly wrong with Mint Theater Company’s current production of forgotten playwright Elizabeth Baker’s The Price of Thomas Scott at Theatre Row, there’s nothing particularly compelling about it either. It has a couple of very good performances, excellent period costumes, and a conflict around an issue that has no relevancy in today’s world.
