A Play In One Act by John Hardy
An intelligent and humorous play for young
audiences that both challenges and entertains.
Approximately forty five minutes long, Fabulous Fables can
be adapted to fit into the high school drama competition
time of thirty five minutes. The play can be performed
with as few as five actors or as many as fifteen. Minimal
scenery and props are required. Only a basic costume for
each actor and individual costume pieces are necessary.
Ideally suited for grade five through High School, the play
is enjoyed equally by adults of all ages.
The play consists of three short plays and a prologue, epilogue and transitions of a running story. The stories are linked together by a series of vignettes about a Wolf who is trying to become an actor in the play but, despite his efforts, he isn't allowed to play in this play.
Approx. 35-45 minutes
"If you are looking for a really neatI mean a really,
truly dandy neato-keenimaginative trip for less than the
price of a movie, then head over to see Fabulous Fables and
"Ostensibly for the younger set, this play will have adults howling in their seats"
"...three venerable fables, all delightfully cracked, scrambled and hilariously retold by playwright, John Hardy."
"...there's never a lull in the action or laughs. You don't need to be a kid to check it out, but it wouldn't hurt to take one along to explain all the cool jokes to you afterwards." Robert McKinney, The Bristol Herald Courier
