Overview

Arthur Honeycutt, a new and very naive antiques dealer addicted to the Arts and Crafts Period and a lively expression from that era, ragtime, declares to his highly skeptical wife Penny, "We're treasure hunters, Penny, Arts and Crafts treasure hunters.

He has much to learn about antiques and life even as he hungers and hunts, like other fanatics in the game, for the Holy Grail of Arts & Crafts, a long-missing treasure by the renown Gustav Stickley. By play's end his character has changed. For the better might be debatable, but at least his wife approves.
