People v. Beanstalk

People v. Beanstalk
A Courtroom Drama of Fairytale Proportions
by: Neil Pisk

Directed by: Brent A. Stringfield
Produced by: Merrill Gill & Ruth Woodbeck

Local playwright/actor Neil Pisk has written a courtroom drama that has Jack Beanstalk, from the fairytale of “Jack and the Beanstalk” on trial for the murder of the Giant after he topples the magic beanstalk. Familiar characters of Jack’s Mother, the Goose That Lays Golden Eggs and the Magical Harp populate the courtroom along with a mix of new characters to create a family-friendly show. The added twist is that the Jury is drawn from the audience of each performance and will decide the verdict. It's a new show at every performance!
