Tomato Plant Girl
Tomato Plant Girl
"A performance involving movement, music and magic which centers around the joys and tyrannies of friendship among little girls, this comedy utilizes a 'tomato spirit'—a force of nature more vegetable than human—to probe the themes of self-esteem, peer pressure, loyalty and self-worth."

Comedy. By Wesley Middleton.

Cast: 3w. (May be expanded with "stagehand" roles.) This powerful exploration of friendship delights young audiences with its sharp dialogue, physical action and playful, high-energy conflict. Little Girl is the new kid in Heretown. Good thing she's got her Bossy Best Friend! The girls share a garden where time moves to the rhythm of Bossy's commands until the day Little Girl can no longer obey. Bossy has forbidden Little Girl to touch her precious tomato plant. But if the plant doesn't get watered soon, it will die. When Bossy leaves to visit her grandma, Little Girl uproots the plant in a valiant rescue, and a messy girl-creature springs out of the earth, spitting up dirt and crying red tears. Soon, Little Girl is playing crazy new games with Tomato Plant Girl and teaching her to say "please." Maybe Little Girl has found a new Best Friend. But what will they do when Bossy returns? And what if Tomato Plant Girl won't stay? When her friendships collide and Little Girl has to choose, she discovers the power of making up her own rules. Simple set. Appoximate running time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
