CLEVER THOMAS & THE TWO BOTTLES
By Mary Thurman Pyle
Performed by Monroe County Middle School Students.
Clever Thomas and the Two Bottles is an adaptation of an old Bulgarian folk tale featuring their national trickster-hero, Clever Thomas. Thomas Higgens, called clever and wise by his doting mother, sets off for the market to sell his basket of eggs. He meets a strong woman in the forest, who convinces Thomas to trade his basket of eggs for a magic bottle and the story begins. The play has a rags to riches, riches to rags, and back again plot involving a Queen, Princess, and Magic Genies. Pride goeth before a fall, lessons are learned, and a happy ending ensues.
