by Midge Guerrera

About the Play

Fable. 25-35 minutes. 3 females, 4-16+ any gender (7-19+ performers possible). Suitable for elementary school and older. 

The Eagle and the Old Woman premiered at the Villagers Theatre (Franklin Township, NJ) in August 2003 as part of the Villagers Summer Theatre Arts Program.


An old woman struggles down a long and dusty trail to buy un-bruised bananas for her spoiled granddaughter. Great Eagle, feeling pity for the woman, repairs her damaged legs and magically creates a bucolic village for her full of the people in her life who love her. But soon after, a thunderous storm in the new village becomes the harbinger of the old woman's overindulged progeny. Will this cantankerous child literally bite the claw that feeds them?
