Lost and Foundling
Lost and Foundling
A Bonderman New Play Festival finalist

Featured in Geva's 2005 Hibernatus Interruptus Festival of New Plays

"Entertaining … will help [kids] realize the importance of experiencing the world around them while not being afraid to explore new things." —The Arizona Republic
By Eric R. Pfeffinger.

Cast: 2m., 2w., 2 either gender. May be expanded up to 2m., 2w., 11 either gender. Unusual things don't usually happen at Price Mart, but at this Mega Price Mart a mega-unusual thing happened once: a little girl was born. Or left. Or got lost in the aisles and her parents never found her. Whatever it was that happened, it was her destiny to be discovered between Truck Mirrors and Oil Filters by some Price Mart associates. They name her Pryce and raise her. Her first word is "affordable." It's a good life at Price Mart, all things considered: clean, well-lit, lots of stuff at reasonable prices, but her discovery one day that there's a place called Lost and Found all the way on the other side of the store sparks restlessness and curiosity about where she came from. What follows is an epic journey of hilarious proportions as our intrepid heroine sets off alone down strange aisles, through unfamiliar sale zones, past new and threatening merchandise. Armed with only her wits and a celebrity magazine, will Pryce manage to evade dangerous pitfalls like the Demanding Shopper and the Neverending Line? Will she ever make it to the western edge of the store? And even if she does find the Lost and Found counter, will she ever uncover the truth about her real family? A comic and contemporary myth set in the recognizable world of changing rooms, free samples, and incandescent lights that never turn off, Lost and Foundling is a modern retail fairy tale about growing up, self-reliance, and big big savings. Flexible staging. Approximate Running Time: 75 minutes.
