BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - Nicholas Grimnasty is trying to abolish Christmas in "The Christmas Cavalier," which opens Friday at the Ice House. Written by Richard Lloyd, "The Christmas Cavalier" is a melodrama about a villain, who is a "conniving, scheming man," said Beth Brooks, who designed the set and wrote the songs. She is also playing Dame Dumplings, the heroine's aunt, and will be speaking with a Cockney accent, she said. The play is based on English history in the 1600s, when the Puritan Oliver Cromwell deposed and beheaded the king and determined all revelry and frivolous fun as ungodly, said Abbie Brown, the play's director.
