Tuttwyler, Ohio, is the perfect Midwestern town. Beautiful square. Gazebo dripping with gingerbread. Leafy streets lined with big white houses. Even the town’s annual summer festival is perfect. It commemorates the unfortunate clubbing death of the Indian princess Podewedka, by the town’s founding fathers, John and Amos Tuttwyler, back in 1803. The only thing that’s not perfect is Howie Dornick’s house. It’s right on the parade route and it hasn’t been painted in years. But that’s going to change, now that D. William Aitchbone is chairman of the Squaw Days Committee. You can bet on that! But Bill Aitchbone has to tread carefully. Howie, after all, is the illegitimate son of local war hero Artie Brown. Howie finally does paint his house. But not white like all the others. He paints it the most obnoxious shade of green imaginable. Howie’s really in hot water now. Then Hugh Harbinger sees Howie’s green house. Hugh was once New York City’s most famous color designer. Before going off the deep end, he created 300 different shades of black! He’s determined to make a comeback. Determined to make “Serendipity Green” the most popular color ever. Serendipity Green not only lampoons America’s small town festivals, it lowers the boom on big city trendiness as well. It is irreverent and iconoclastic and simply irresistible.
