Tricky Treat by Myles Nye

 

Synopsis

This "Rashomon" style play for young actors re-tells the events of the same night from three different perspectives to answer the question: who stole whose Halloween costume? Along the way you'll meet the town's best trick-or-treaters, Satchel, Bucket and Bagby: they're best friends, or are they frenemies? Also two giant snails, the stuffed-shirt mayor, and the Kids in Hats (they don't play by the rules).
