By: Richard Krawiec
Cast: 20 flexible, extras
Performance Time: Approximately 20-25 minutes, 20 pgs.


CHILDREN'S INTERACTIVE COMEDY. A narrator attempts to tell the tale of a farmer, a fisherman, and a weaver, but he keeps getting interrupted by an unruly host of characters. It seems that everyone has something to say, but nobody will listen! There’s a talking dog, a talking fish—even a talking throne—all of whom feel they’ve been misused and neglected. Based on a West African folktale, young actors will love this action-packed play, which blends sight gags, wordplay, and slapstick humor. Even the audience can get in on the fun!
