In this long-awaited prequel to the Calamity Gulch series, we find out the Ma and Pa Culpepper met and how Horace Prickley inspired pretty flower peddler Flossie McDurdle to become the legendary Sahara Hartburn!

Gideon Culpepper opens the Last Chance Inn and the guests pour in immediately!  Dashing Horace Prickley agrees to help poor Flossie become a lady, so she can win her heart's true love, the spineless but wealthy Theodore Vanderthistle. Teddy's scheming mother, Vedalia has other plans though. She sends for Posey Lee Perriwinkle, a beautiful Southern belle who arrives via Pony Express as a mail-order bride. Unfortunately, Posey falls for Gideon instead. Meanwhile Horace finds the he is falling for Flossie and facing the dilemma of helping her and therefore losing her to Teddy.  This clever play weaves together elements of My Fair Lady and Gone with The Wind for one hilarious evening of laughs.  

Blame It on the Pony Express -Or- The Bride Came C.O.D. by Whitney Ryan Garrity is produced by special arrangement with Eldrige Publishing Company.
