Grandma Duck is dead : a play in one act by Larry Shue( Book )
2 editions published between 1979 and 1984 in English and held by 117 libraries worldwide
"The time is 1968, the place, a room in a college dormitory occupied by Woody and Ben Davidson, two graduating seniors. Woody is trying to finish a term paper while his roommate naps, but they are both frustrated by the arrival of their manic friend 'The Badger,' who wants to 'play'--which means one of the wildly imaginative flights of make-believe that he and Woody have concocted. This time their fantasies range from Woody's being a talking panda to ragging Ben about the imaginary girlfriend they have created for him, but things really get strange when Tim Esperanza, a black drop-out, comes by and agrees to let Woody hypnotize him. Once he is 'under,' Esperanza believes that he is Ringo Starr of The Beatles, which leads to a number of hilarious developments. But the fun is dampened both by the arrival of Badger's lady friend, Paula, who considers their behavior juvenile, and by the scary fact that Woody is suddenly unable to bring Esperanza 'back.' The tension is broken when Esperanza not only comes to, but admits that he has been putting them on. But the sudden fear he has aroused has left its mark, and underscored the poignance of their situation--that the antic joys of college days will soon be behind them and, considering the disjointed world that awaits, will surely never be regained."--
My emperor's new clothes : a musical play for children by Larry Shue( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
"Everyone is familiar with the timeless story by Hans Christian Andersen, but the present version abounds in delightful differences: The action now takes place in the mythical kingdom of Mango-Chutney, which has a parade every day, a one-man army named Pony, and an Emperor who is known as the wisest man in the world because he has read the dictionary all the way through. The Emperor, deciding to hold a special parade for which he must have the most beautiful clothes in the world, offers half of the state treasury to the weaver who comes up with the finest cloth. And being as wise as he is, he also announces that he will give the other half of the treasury plus the hand of his daughter, Princess Farthingale to anyone who can make him believe that something is real when actually it is not. Needless to say all this leads to much furious activity and some diabolical plotting by Skreech and Clodney, two oafish spies from neighboring Bulgravia. And while it is touch and go for a while, all ends happily and in a burst of song as the villains are routed, the Princess united with her true love, and the Emperor saved by the cheerfully vocal intercession of the enthralled audience."--
