Stone Soup is the story of a tramp who convinces a family of bickering sisters to help make a pot of soup that sweetens their natures and changes their lives.  The tramp puts his "soup stone" in a pot of water and then convinces the arguing sisters to add potatoes, tomatoes, onions and more.  They are thrilled with the result, more thrilled when the tramp gives them his "soup stone" and so busy planning their next soup that they forget to argue.

Love this little play and so flexible on genders and numbers. It will work out great with my primary students to tie in with the thematic unit for communities! My only issue is that the English variety the play uses reinforces a few linguistic habits that our ELD students are trying to overcome. Otherwise, a great play and will use it again!

Each of the plays in the STONES collection seems far too short for a full production. In addition the cast list for a couple of them is massive.
