Winner! 2010 AATE Distinguished Play Award
A Fair Price is about three women who turn the tables on the greedy merchants who are cheating them. One woman must pay three copper coins when a greedy merchant charges her for the shade under a wagon.  Another woman must pay for the smell of a honey cake.  A third woman is charged for hearing the sound of a flute.  The women put their heads together and use the same trick with a different twist.  They pay these greedy merchants with the shadow of three copper coins, the smell of three copper coins and the sound of three copper coins rattling.
