“The Boy Who Cried Wolf” plays in New York

Public School 5 of Staten Island, New York performs The Boy Who Cried Wolf on January 11. In this stage dramatization of Aesop’s fable, a young boy named Roy is very bored as he tends to his family’s flock of sheep.  Pearl, the girl that Roy has a crush on, comes to visit and asks Roy to go get ice-cream with her.  When Roy explains that he cannot leave the sheep, Pearl questions the importance of his job and begs to see his “wolf-crying” skills in action.  The Boy Who Cried Wolf is published by Pioneer Drama Service.
