The Pixie and the Grocer
The Pixie and the Grocer
This play is published in Pixies, Kings and Magical Things: Four Tales by Hans Christian Andersen
By Ric Averill. Adapted from the tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

Cast: 2m., 1w. (1 to 2 m. or w.) A pixie lives in the home of a grocer and survives every day on the gruel he leaves out. Then the pixie overhears the student reading his poetry. She is so enraptured that when the grocer's house is engulfed by fire, the pixie chooses to run back and save the poetry book rather than the grocer's gold--thus choosing "art over appetite." Of course her magic leads to a happy ending.
