Mom and Jack would get along just fine if it wasn't for that pesky social worker who keeps butting into everyone else's business. To make matters worse, some theatre company hired a critic who thinks it's his business to nitpick the storyline. A famine in the land forces Jack to sell the family cow—but at the Missouri State Fair? Mom doesn't mind...after all, when Jack's gone, she can go party. One thing leads to another, and while Jack climbs the beanstalk to land in a neighborhood of tract-castles, the social worker uses his absence as an excuse to cut the family's benefits. Mom's still concerned with keeping her check coming, until she realizes that golden eggs provide for a much higher standard of living, and the poor narrator is trying to douse the critic's constant complaining and just move the story along. Audiences will love the twists, turns, and take-offs of a fairy tale gone nuts.
