The story is based on an Italian folk tale and tells the story of three brothers who are sent away by their long-suffering mother, after she gives them all magic gifts. The youngest son, Guido, loses his magic purse to a crafty Queen and then loses his brothers’ gifts to her tricks, as well. Finally, Guido proves that he has some tricks of his own and the Queen gets what she deserves. The play has been performed by lower and middle school casts as well as by adult actors.
