A Crust of Bread!

COMEDY. Adapted from the play Make Believe by A. A. Milne. The King and Queen are eager to decide who will marry their daughter since her suitors, who have rather hearty appetites, are eating them out of castle and kingdom. The suitors include the snobby Yellow Prince, who doesn’t like to get his hands dirty; the Blue Prince, who likes to stare into space; and the Red Prince, who is phony and condescending. To find the suitor with the kindest heart, the King and Queen decide to test them by having the Queen disguise herself as a beggar and ask each suitor for a crust of bread. However, unbeknownst to her parents, the Princess has proposed marriage to the “oh so very slow and uncomprehending but entirely adorable” Woodcutter. The Princess and Woodcutter overhear the King and Queen’s plans and concoct a scheme in which the Woodcutter will prove to have the kindest heart with the help of three pieces of dreadfully dry, moldy bread. Delightfully wacky characters take center stage in this hilarious play!
