Large Mixed Cast
Amini and Ajidi care about nothing except having a good time and so they are sent from their village with nothing but a hoe, an axe, and a bag of seed. The over-confident boys aren't too troubled by this, but they hadn't planned on hungry geese. A warm, witty and wise retelling of a traditional African folk tale

This is part of the Curtain Up! series which offers exciting and versatile new plays which can be used in many different ways - for reading or perfomance, with a large or small cast. Unusually, the attractive & large A4 format playscript can be photocopied as many times as necessary, and the "Director's Notes" and "Letter from the Playwright" give lots of tips and practical advice on how to stage the plays, including notes on Costume, Music and Props. Although aimed at the 7-11 age group, these plays can be enjoyed by a wider range and run about 50 minutes
