In this short (30-min.) one-act comedy, Myrtle and Rose are two fairies who dislike human beings. They temporarily take human form, with surprising consequences. There are three scenes. Cast for either 2 women, or 1 woman and 1 man, this play was originally written for h.s. play competitions, and went to state level. With minimal cast and sets, it is ideal for h.s., church or small theater groups.
