Winner! 2010 AATE Distinguished Play Award
Banana Sandwich In A Boat is the story of a foolish bridegroom who must find three fools greater than himself before the wedding can take place.  Luckily for him, the world proves to have no shortage of fools.  First there is the man who jumps out of a tree in attempt to put on his pants.  Next there is the woman who built a house with no windows and now must haul in buckets of sunshine.  And finally there is the town where a woman riding a donkey can't fit under a gate and the townspeople argue over whether to cut off the poor donkey's legs or the poor woman's head.  The bridegroom is happily married.
