notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf, is being
slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters
he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted
Forest — the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother — will clash (on
live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm as commentator!) in a trial
that will be remembered forever after. As Little Red Riding Hood, her
Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy
Who Cried Wolf testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that's coming.
But, even though the disreputable Evil Stepmother couldn't be less
interested in pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr.
Wolf makes a good case for himself. Was he born a criminal, or made
one? Perhaps he does deserve compassion instead of condemnation? What
will the verdict be? Only the jury — the audience — can decide, when
the doddering old Judge invites them to determine the outcome of the
trial... and the play!
