Little Devils 

6 short plays by the Helltown Players

Little Devils is the inaugural production of the Helltown Players. The plays – written by some of the organization’s trustees – are six short works that represent the amazing variety and quality of theatrical works written by Cape Cod playwrights. 


A collection of published award-winning plays as well as world premieres, each offers a unique worldview – entertaining, hilarious, inspiring, and heart-warming.
