The Morning Bird Sings by Craig Spaner


Have you ever looked at the world through the eyes of a child? As we meet Jake and Bill, we come to view what the power of a true friendship really entails. It's a witty romp through the pages of literature, operetta, friendship, and food. The play takes place in Jake and Bill's backyard. There is a wooden boat (which can be either real or implied). The play discusses Jake and Bill's views on food, on the world and literature, and most importantly - on friendship. It is a character play focusing on the relationship of Jake and Bill to each other and to the world around them. There is a slight twist at the end of the play that puts everything into a different perspective.
