Play Title:The Boy who Cried Wolf
Runtime:11-30 minutes
Synopsis:In this reimaging of Aesop’s fable, a young boy named Roy is very bored as he tends to his family’s flock of sheep. Pearl, a girl that Roy has a crush on, comes to visit and asks Roy to go get ice-cream with her. When Roy explains that he cannot leave the sheep, Pearl questions the importance of his job and begs to see his “wolf-crying” skills in action. Reluctantly, Roy agrees, despite the warnings from the sheep. Meanwhile, a wolf and her pup enter and watch from behind a tree. When Roy’s family responds to the false alarm, they are none too pleased. Thoroughly amused by the antics, Pearl plans an elaborate presentation, dressing one of the sheep up as a wolf and hiding another sheep behind the tree where the real wolves are waiting. Against his better judgment, Roy again “cries wolf”. The family arrives, even more distraught. No longer willing to succumb to her peer pressure, Roy tells Pearl to leave. The wolves take this opportunity to emerge from their hiding place, as the sheep scatter in terror. Roy calls for his family, but they do not come to his rescue.
