The Stonecutter

by Ruth Cantrell

About the Play

Dramedy. 25-35 minutes. 8-21+ any gender. Suitable for elementary school and older performers, and elementary audiences.


Discontented with a life spent chiseling rock, a humble stonecutter yearns for more. So when a benevolent guardian spirit offers to transform him into anyone—or anything—he desires, the stonecutter sets forth on a whirlwind journey through Japan. Will he be happier as an emperor? Or as the sun? Or perhaps a raincloud, the wind, even a towering mountain? Or will he find that all things have their purpose, and there's nothing quite like being yourself...?
