Additional Info

Fractured fable of the tribulations of Jonah and how he learned to serve God. If you're looking for entertaining instruction, this whimsical short piece is sure to fill the bill. Audiences age 5 to 95 are sure to be charmed by the adventures of the good-hearted (albeit no Einstein) Jack, his troubles with two little men who speak only gibberish, and the demands of a dictatorial German officer (Hans Schmidt) who runs the back end of the whale. A delightful, easy to produce play (the whale can be simplified).
