About the Play

Dramedy. 7-10 minutes. 3 any gender. Suitable for elementary and older performers, and audiences of all ages.

Premiered at Honolulu Theatre for Youth (Honolulu, HI).


Meet two hermit crabs, temporarily dwelling in the tide pools. One has decorated a simple shell with a friend, a sea anemone. The other crab has adorned their shell with human junk. But when the tide begins to rise and it's time to move to higher ground and safety, the second crab can't move—all those shiny things are too heavy. Will the others be able to convince their friend to part with these "treasures" before it's too late?
