Chinese fantasy. By Madge Miller.
Cast: 3m., 5w., 1 either gender, or 9w. This fantasy play is done in the ancient and delightful Chinese manner. The lovely Princess Jade Pure is held practically captive by her jealous scheming step aunt and her chancellor. Road Wanderer, a minstrel passing through the country with his pet dragon, learns of her plight and rescues her. But he disappears when she seems to him thoughtless and unkind. Making an effort to find him, Jade Pure decrees that the man she marries must have a pet dragon, and in the next scene two false dragons arrive, awkwardly practicing dragon ways and scrambling for safety when they catch a glimpse of each other. Road Wanderer escapes from captivity just in time to save Jade Pure from a fatal marriage. Empty stage with portable properties. Chinese and dragon costumes. Suitable for an all-female cast. Approximate running time: 80 minutes.
