House play

The play that Miles Staveley and I adapted from the book Politically Correct Bedtime Stories by James Finn Garner (ISBN 002542730X, Wiley). This was a house play one year at the school we attended.

The book contains thirteen tales, and we chose four of them. The text of the original stories has ended up on the Web: Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Chicken Little.

I have typed this file in from a printed copy and unfortunately a couple of lines are missing (though unimportant ones, I think). I plan to make a nicely formatted version but haven't had time yet, so for now there is just a text version available:

The title for this play was 'Willetta's Ostrich', we also considered 'Thirty Seconds Left' or naming it after the book.

There was originally a short programme with cast details and 'notes', but I haven't found a copy. Please contact me if you have one, or if you know what the two missing lines in the final scene are.
