Originally written for a professional production starring Joe Pasquale, this script has been specially adapted for the amateur stage.
When Humpty Dumpty falls from the wall, an old witch's curse is fulfilled. Spiderwoman steals the King's crown and absconds with it. With the help of Prince Simon, Contrary Mary and pretty Polly Flinders, Humpty embarks on a dangerous quest to the Temple of Cobwebs to recover the crown and save the kingdom from ruin. The script is slick, fast-paced and full of fun, with copious notes provided by the writer/producer.
