Jack & Jill & The Beanstalk
by Craig Hewlett published 2008
Suitable for All Groups
A delightfully inventive script describing Jack's adventures up the beanstalk in the land of Guy Ant. Plus a host of colourful characters including wicked Squire Sir Nicholas, and devious duo Robin Ublind and Conrad Fidence-Tryckster.
Jack's mum Dame Dolly Mixtures can't pay the rent so they sell off the family pet Daisy the camel. Two con men sell Jack some magic beans, and when he plants these, he is transported to the land of the Giant, where he fights the said giant and nicks his golden goose. Meanwhile evil Squire Sir Nicholas has kidnapped Jill, but all ends happily - of course!
