How can an obvious hoax become so believable? Duck hunters conspire to have the migratory paths to themselves by concocting a story about Pekinese Yellowtails from China flying a few miles to the south. The more one tells his sidekick about the mysteries of the Pekinese Yellowtails, the more enthralled they become until they are hooked on their own invention in this astonishing upside down comedy.
Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 16th Series.
King of the Pekinese Yellowtail was originally co-produced by Pat and Gerald Brown and the Pulse Ensemble Theatre Company. It was directed by Pat Brown.
