Adapted by William Glennon.
Cast: 7m., 5w. (5 children.) A plague of rats is not all that is wrong in Hamelin; in fact, the emphasis is on the failure of the adults to understand their children—a situation the Piper tries to set right. This conflict breathes new meaning into this very famous story. Colorful, believable characters and a brand new climax add dimension, excitement and drama to this most imaginative version. One ext. set.
