Divine Bovine, The

COMEDY. Betsy, the cow from “Jack and the Beanstalk,” hijacks the original story and tells an “udderly” ridiculous version in which she is the star. In it, Jack’s mother, a shopaholic drama queen, sends Jack to the market to sell Betsy, but Jack trades Betsy for three magic beans, which grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack climbs the beanstalk and encounters a short “giant” who mistakes Jack for a delivery guy and gives him some gold coins. After hiring a butler and going on another shopping spree, Jack’s mother is broke again, so Jack brings her some golden eggs from a goose that tells bad jokes. But Mother’s shopaholic ways finally catch up with her when the repo man arrives. Afraid Mother will end up in a debtors’ prison, Jack steals a golden harp, knowing it’s only a matter a time before the real Giant will come looking for his missing gold. Meanwhile, Betsy’s new owner has created a traveling show that stars Betsy as a bovine fortuneteller, and only Betsy, “The Divine Bovine,” can fix this mess! Audiences will love this bovine bonanza!
