Synopsis

The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf

$9.99

Joseph Robinette

Published by Dramatic Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
The Wolf - villain or victim? The Three Pigs - innocent or at fault? The Jurors (Miss Muffet, Bo Peep, Cinderella and Humpty-Dumpty, to name a few) - solid citizens or characters with a past?

And what about Judge Wise O. Al? Is justice on his side-or does he have a secret to hide? Then there's the media-a reporter, newscaster and town crier

Have they come to accurately report the proceedings-or to turn the courtroom into a media circus? And who is that surprise witness at the end? The answers to these profound questions and even more are revealed once and for all in this rollicking, fun-filled, action-packed trial-of-the-century (of course this century's nearly over, so look for a new trial-of-the-century in a couple of years)

Just as he did in the widely produced Trial of Goldilocks, Joseph Robinette examines the guilt, or innocence, of the accused from different points of view and comes up with a surprising, yet eminently satisfying, conclusion in which no one escapes unscathed

And, as a bonus, a lesson or two is learned along the way. It all ends happily ever after, of course, with the newly bonded Wolf and Pigs along with the fairy-tale jury and all the others heading for a post-trial party at the castle of Old King Cole

The play may be performed by children, adults or a combination of both. A true ensemble piece, this delightful comedy, with its intriguing story line and vivid characterizations, will appeal to audiences and performers of all ages

One simple set. Approximate running time - 1 hour
