Clowns\' Play
Clowns' Play
By Reginald F. Bain.

Cast: 4m., 4w. "Show Today" and "Jack and the Beanstalk" read two signs placed at the proscenium on the otherwise bare stage. Clown ushers escort the young people to their seats in anticipation of a performance of the age-old classic. But it's time for the show and the group that was supposed to present the play has phoned to say that their van has broken down and they are not going to make it. The clown ushers gather on stage to decide what to do. Should they send the audience home? With the help of the youngsters, they decide to act out the story themselves using their clown characters as the basis for their improvisation of "Jack and the Beanstalk." Utilizing what they can find backstage, asking for help from the audience when they get stuck, and capitalizing on the unique talents of each of the clowns, they play out the story, discovering thereby the meaning of being a clown. Bare stage w/props. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
