A One Act Play for children. Inspired by the stories of Hans Christian Andersen, and told with a love of Dr. Seuss and William Shakespeare, this play is in rhyming couplets to assist children in memorizing their lines. While tackling a few topical situations, it is set in a fictional kingdom far away, uses minimal sets, and supports ten speaking parts and as many non-speaking parts as there are children to support them. It could also be performed by adults for an audience of young folk.
The poor man trudges in from stage left, hangs up his hat and sits heavily on the wine cask.
Penny, my darling, I have finally come home,
What did you bring?
A freshly dropped scone.
Don’t worry about the leaves, they add vital roughage,
And this one I didn’t have to dig out of the garbage.
I was on my way home feeling most dejected,
By that new rich person’s club they just erected.
And I was behind a fat woman and her two little monsters,
When the oldest one dropped this precious sweet roll,
I was afraid he would pick it up again, like a greedy little troll,
But the younger one gave it a kick under some nearby bushes,
Then their mother beat them soundly on their oversized tushes.
I slyly crawled down and started searching in the fog,
When I found it in the mouth of a mangy, vicious dog.
He growled, and I growled, and then he growled louder,
I bared my fangs, and when he bit me on the shoulder,
He dropped it, I grabbed it, and quickly ran away.
And that is how I won our bread for today.
