Double-mistaken identity sends this Mississippi bluegrass musical into a tailspin. A rascally robber of the woods woos the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. Her evil stepmother, a pea-brained henchman, and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk rile up the country-side to bring Eudora Welty's The Robber Bridegroom full circle.
