The Discontented Grasshopper
Book and Lyrics by Greg Edwards, Music by Jonathan Breit
Hannibal is no longer content living in Farmer Marvin's fields, so he hatches
a plan which may or may not involve the destruction of humanity.
- HANNIBAL, a little grasshopper with a big dream
- PA GRASSHOPPER, Hannibal's father who's content with the status quo
- MA GRASSHOPPER, Hannibal's mother who's content with the status quo and
poor verb usage
- TIRESIAS, the blind grasshopper prophet
This piece was the product of a write-a-15-minute-musical-in-a-week festival.
our topic on Thursday, wrote the musical over the weekend (during which I
also moved to a new apartment), rehearsed it during the week, and performed it
the following Friday. Yikes.
