SYNOPSIS: The play could not begin more stereo-typically: A narrator enters and speaks the famous words, “Once upon a time,” then brings out three well-known characters: Jack, his mother, and his cow from “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Next, the narrator flips a coin...and kills off Jack and his companions. So goes the play--introduction of age-old characters, coin flip, sudden death of age-old characters. Tracy, however, cannot stand this chain of events and tries to intercede. Logic doesn’t work with the murderous narrator, so Tracy resorts to trickery and eventually ends the carnage.
