Ferdinand is a boy who when he is mad can't talk - he fights instead. His mother suggests using his head and words to defend himself against bullying. But it doesn't work and he runs away after kicking a teacher. On the road he meets a skunk who can't produce a skunk smell and a nice girl dragon who can't breathe fire. The three see they have the same problem - difficulty with self defense. Two knights looking for dragons to slay - Ferdinand had met them previously -- find him, the skunk and the girl dragon. The three are forced to learn to defend themselves. They succeed and Ferdinand saves the day by controlling his impulse to fight. A great lesson play with a sense of humor for children.
Go Jump in the Lake was produced by and toured for The Children's Theatre Company of the Long Wharf Theatre, New Haven, Connecticut.
