A short one act play about two sisters in a foster home and their dolls. When their mean foster sister breaks their dolls and blames it on the girls, the girls get locked in the closet, where their imaginations set them free. In theatre, as in kids imaginations, anything is possible.
Narrator-Unknown to Molly and Maggie, their mean foster sister was listening outside the door.
Foster Sister-So those little brats think they can have fun, eh? Is that what she thinks? Well, I'll put a stop to that. I can't have any fun if they're having fun. (Enters room) Hello sweet, dear sisters.
Molly-What do you want?
Foster Sister-(Sweetly)I want to play with you.
Foster Sister-Yes. Let's play house.
Maggie-Be careful with those dolls.
Foster Sister-Of course I will be careful. I'm your big sister aren't I? s is my dolly. I call her Mallory. Whatcha doin?
Toys in the Closet is appropriate for kids aged 6-12. And as in Peter Pan, the children look to the audience to support them in making what seems mere imagination, mere dreams, come true. At Bottle Tree we believe that kids are capable of achieving their dreams. The dream is a pathway to follow, not a distraction to be ignored,
