A Dragon in the Mix By Sue Ann Gunn
What’s the formula for a frolicsome fairy tale farce that’s fun for all ages? In one large palace, combine a queen, her mother, ladies-in-waiting and assorted princesses. Let simmer. That’s the recipe our four mischievous fairies — Rumor, Gossip, Hearsay and Innuendo — are cooking up in this witty fairy tale spoof. After the fairy foursome add a dragon to the mix (for piquancy), they have to either find a hero to slay the beast or satiate it… and legend has it that dragons like to eat princesses! Meanwhile, bored of the pampered princess life, the queen’s three daughters set out to see what they can do. ’We’d rather be eaten by a hundred dragons than face one more of Aspidistra’s lectures!,’ exclaims Princess Daisy, referring to one of their stuffy governesses. When the fairies toss three princes lost in a forest into their concoction, they’re cooking up quite a meal! If you have an appetite for fun and laughter but not a lot of time or resources, this sweetly simple spoof is made just for you.
