Remus Tales Script
This play is a story theatre adaptation loosely based on folktales in Harris' Uncle Remus. Remus Tales features stories of the underdog. Brer Terrapin has the two zombie-like big critters of Brer Bear and Brer Fox set the stage, which depicts a stretch of the Big Road. Brer Rabbit comes along, wakes the big critters from their lethargy, and plays such pranks on them that they get mighty mean. Brer Bear and Brer Fox try everything to outdo and outwit the little rabbit and terrapin, but these two finally play one last trick on them that strikes them dumb. Then Brer Terrapin has those two zombie-like big critters take the set apart, back to what it was. This award-winning play has had successful productions throughout the country. Simple set, somewhere in Georgia. Suitable for touring. Neutral costumes with animal-piece overlays. Approximate running time: 50 minutes.
