This is a somewhat zany retelling of the traditional story of Jonah. Although enhanced with some extra characters and scenes, the theme and overall message hold true to the Old Testament Scriptures. Included in the story is Herald, the angel who acts as God’s voice and has the ability to turn up at unusual places and in unusual ways. In the opening scene a handful of fun-loving woodland creatures discover Jonah asleep, and bring in the right blend of seriousness when they realize he must be the prophet. Along the way Jonah interacts with some sailors who eventually toss him overboard. When Herald orders Bigfish to swallow Jonah, the creature protests saying he gags easily. Another underwater character, Squidly, adds even more humor with his habit of talking nonstop. Then Jonah encounters the nasty Ninevites who try to play “prophet pinball” with him! The play climaxes in the desert where Jonah finally realizes the message of God’s grace. Filled with action, the play clearly emphasizes many Biblical ideas including God’s omnipresence, the authority of His will, His grace, and His love. Intended for children, the play works well for a whole family audience. About 45 minutes.
