This radio play, adapted from a Hans Christian Andersen story, illustrates how easily racism, bigotry, hypocrisy, stupidity, and apathy can escalate into violence and destroy an innocent and gifted creature. Andersen’s folk tales always have a dark side and involve moral and ethical issues. Using poultry and droll humour to show us ourselves, this one is, indeed, a cautionary tale.
