Comedy Play Script: 'Pig Tale' by Ron Nicol

An over-confident Narrator begins the traditional story, but is interrupted by the Prompter, who has substituted an altered script, which introduces an innocent Little Pig, a criminally inclined Second Pig and a drug-taking Third Pig. Mummy kicks the three pigs out into the big wide world and heads off to the pub. The First Pig leaves to seek a fortune and the Second heads off to sign on.

The Third Pig steals a bundle of straw from a passer-by, but unable to build a house, lies down under the straw. A Sheep enters, pretending to be the Big Bad Wolf, but is sent away by the Narrator. The real Wolf arrives, recites the traditional huffing, puffing and blowing the house down jingle and chases the Third Pig away.

The Narrator resumes the story. The Second Little Pig steals a bundle of sticks from a passer-by, but unable to build a house, props the sticks against a wall. The Sheep again pretends to be the Wolf but is again sent away. The Wolf arrives, recites the rhyme and the Second Pig runs off.

The Narrator picks up the story. The First Pig helps a passer-by to carry some bricks, is given them as a reward, and builds a house complete with several security features. The other Pigs arrive and move in. Following the Sheep and Wolf sequences, the police arrive, arrest the Wolf, and Mummy and the Second and Third Pig take over the house. The First Little Pig becomes a tramp, selling copies of ‘Pig Issue’, but is dismissed by the Narrator.

The Prompter expects congratulations for the changes to the story but is chased round the stage by the furious Narrator as the play ends.
