It’s Jim and Della’s wedding anniversary. They’re young, terribly in love, and flat broke. Finding a gift that will express the warmth and closeness they feel for each other is almost impossible. This bittersweet love story describes the gifts Della and Jim give, and the price they have to pay. Their folly, however, makes them even richer. This is a beautiful, sympathetic, and warmly human account of O. Henry’s well-known story.


Jim… Age 22, a young husband
Della… Age 20, a young wife
Maggie… Age 17, the landlady’s daughter
Madame Sofronie…20s-50s, a wigmaker
