The Archer and the Princess: now available at Dramatic Publishing.
Folktale/Comedy. By Patricia Barry Rumble. Loosely based on a Russian folktale "Go I Know Not Where and Fetch I Know Not What." It's a classic comedy. Imagine the characters of the Czar, the Councilor and Wizard as the Marx Brothers (Groucho, Harpo and Chico) and the roles of Maria and her husband Andre the Archer as the love interest, and you're got a funny comedy. The Czar wants to marry Maria, so to get rid of the archer, the Czar sends him on 3 seemingly impossible missions: to fetch Croon Cat, the legendary beast of the forest; to go to the Next World to visit the Czar's dead father and to go there he knows not where and fetch that he knows not what. Also the Czar is on the Methuselah diet, having to eat lots of chicken a day to live to be 200 years old and he is beginning to turn into a giant chicken. And did we mention that Baba Yaga is Maria's long lost mother and there's a magic rug involved somehow It's a fun show with many stylized locations. Audiences of all ages love this comedy. It's for the whole family.
