Charlotte’s Web tells the story of a livestock pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte. The most enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give the audience an evening of enchantment.
