Bare Stage/Simple Set

Set just before the holidays, SEVEN IN ONE BLOW, OR THE BRAVE LITTLE KID tells the story of a child living in the city who kills seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt emblazoned with "Seven in One Blow" to commemorate the event. The Kid travels about meeting numerous colorful characters, including the Scarlet Pimpernel, a Pea, December, a Witch, an Ogre and a Princess. Most people think this belt refers to seven people and assign the Kid all kinds of difficult tasks based on this faulty presumption. Along the way a few invaluable lessons are learned: An Ogre finds that you don't always have to show how strong you are…sometimes it's okay just to be quiet about it; a girl realizes that when you tease people, you are hurting someone who may be just like you; and a scary monster comes to understand that because she is loved, she may not be so scary after all. In the end, the Kid ultimately discovers that a parent's love and care has no limits.
"All of this fun is part of an updated version of 'The Brave Little Tailor,' the classic tale…As this brave little kid triumphs over an ogre, a witch, selfish royalty and a monster, the audience learns not to judge anything by its appearance, from parents to peas…" —NY Times. "…always sweet and never saccharine…One could presume that this show's purpose is to enthrall children, but the effect was the same for the parents on whose laps they were seated." —OffOffOnline.com.
