Stone Soup – Little Rock

One day, a lovable wanderer – down on his luck, lonely and hungry – came upon a little house at the end of a long road. Though the house looked to be nearly as down on its luck as he, the traveler knocked on the door and called out, “Hello inside. Is anyone home? I’m a hungry traveler who wants food to feed his tummy.” A little woman peeked out a window. She smiled. She winked, then she opened her door. Delighted, the traveler stepped inside to discover a treasure even more previous than a pot of delicious soup. Earnest charm, playful imagination and heart-warming music are the key ingredients in this fresh, tasty, nourishing new play.
