Synopsis

Reality and fantasy mix in this powerful exploration of the inner journey of children. The world of dreams versus fears, love versus abuse of power, and freedom versus responsibility is imaginatively presented through song, dance and dialogue. In Becca, Jonathan's pets languish in cages, remembering a time when he played with them. Little sister, Becca, portrayed as a beautiful but sad doll, is Jonathan's "pet" now. He relishes the control he has over her, imagining he has her undying love and devotion. But one day, Becca refuses Jonathan's order to "Say you're my doll" and is banished to the closet. Scary creatures of the closet haunt Becca but evaporate when she finally opens her eyes. She emerges with new confidence and determination to be free and eagerly encourages the animals to free themselves as well. The pets muster their resolve, escaping to the field and forest. Becca leaves Jonathan, returning only after he has expressed heartfelt remorse for his actions. Together, they begin anew, as equals and friends. Becca is an excellent source for theatre for young audience studies.
