Gappers are fuzzy orange creatures that wreak havoc on the seaside town of Frip. They latch onto the goats (whom they love) in the three-family village and jeopardize the community's goat-milk-based economy. Every day, the children of Frip brush gappers off their goats to toss them back into the ocean, and every day the gappers return. When the pesky critters target only one of the houses and the neighbors unexpectedly refuse to help, 10-year-old Capable must cope single-handedly with the gapper invasion—which she does with her own special brand of compassion and resourcefulness. After the tables turn on Capable's neighbors, will she rally to their assistance or revel in their comeuppance? A tuneful, hilarious and wildly theatrical youth musical presented by quick-change actors and a bevy of puppets, Gappers received its world premiere at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in a Mark Taper Forum P.L.A.Y. production.
