Candy is money. Money is candy. Candy is dangerously addictive. And no one knows where it's coming from. While on a forced vacation to visit their witch step-grandmother Baba Yaga, Hank and Gretchen are about to be made into the most poisonous candy to date. Will young Sally Soda Pop save her best friends with sugar-driven energy and unwavering loyalty? Will Barbie Yaga find the love in her heart to free herself from her mother's evil Tic Tac popping spell? Will homeless, candy addict Sugar Daddy discover his purpose and long-lost familial roots? Narrated by an inflicted, conflicted foursome of grandparents, Hank & Gretchen tells the story of family and friends, health and control, and an economy that rides on chocolate. 60-75 minutes. 8-15 males, 8-15 females (23-75+ performers possible). Ideal for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, youth theatres, universities, and community theatres. Published and performances licensed by YouthPLAYS (www.youthplays.com), publisher of plays for young actors and audiences.
