The carol "Good King Wenceslas" is the basis for this lively 45 minute farce. The Good King Wenceslas (a name everyone seems to have trouble pronouncing) sets out to give his gift to a peasant he has seen, but encounters unanticipated difficulties from some of his subjects who question the "political correctness" of his gift. Much fun is derived from the "thither and yon" of Olde English.
