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.

All Male

JAKE - Jake is somewhere in his forties or fifties. Most important is that he's a good ol' boy resident of Tampa, Texas, and it is in this scene that he genuinely decides to leap the boundaries of his routine, predictable, and unimaginative existence. He's not a crazy man. He's passionate about his dream - and he pursues it level-headedly, because he must. His imagination is his venture ground and he submits to it with the innocence, abandon, and sanity of a child.
JED - Jake's close friend since childhood; also a good ol' Tampa boy. His relationship to Jake is like that of a younger brother - though they are close in age. In this act we find him quite unprepared for Jake's change of life madness.
