"Another smash hit, you clever devils. I adored it!"
-National Theatre
Cast

Mrs Pig: Florence Park Dean has had it up to HERE with her three sons. She has tried everything: tenderness, misdirection, compassion, bribery, tough love, family counseling yet nothing seems to bring the loving peaceful house she dreamed of while getting her Masters of Early Childhood Education at Harvard. As a member of the historic Experimental Piglet Foundation headed by Reggio Emilia she graduated in 1980 filled with optimism and idealism. After stints teaching in Vista and Head Start she and her husband, arms negotiator James Dean, couldn't wait to have her own "lab". She is currently exploring career changes with options such as massage therapy and outer space exploration heading her lists of interests.
Little Yellow: (all of the pigs were named after a primary color at first, allowing the children to eventually choose their own names and not be subjected to the tyranny of their parents ideas. This stand was controversial with the grandparents) : Little Yellow is the family's musician having been given a classical guitar for his 4th birthday. He quickly replaced it with an electric guitar. Citing as his influences Jimi Hendricks, Robert Paige, Danny Gatton, and Wes Montgomery he has prompted numerous "TURN THAT THING DOWN" from the neighbors. He is currently forming his 11th basement boogie band. His greatest aspiration is to perform with legendary but seldom seen John Synk Band.
Little Blue: Little Blue is the family mechanic, having taken apart his first toaster at the incredible age of 6 months. By his first birthday he had dismantled the microwave, a vcr, 4 clocks, the lawnmower, his mother's hairdryer , 3 telephones and his father's beloved antique Atari game controller. It's a well kept family secret that all are still in pieces. Little Blue is legendary for his ferocious curiosity and his short attention span. His future goal is to be a rocket scientist. Or a demolition expert.
Little Red: Little Red has been a precocious builder since a baby, creating what his parents claimed was a replica of Stonehenge out of mud while he was still in diapers. At two years of age he created a version of Frank Loyd Wright's Falling Water House on the edge of his bath tub creating a mess whose ramifications are still being discovered. Other influences on his architectural wonders are Robert Johnson, Frank Gehry, Pee Wee Herman and Evel Kneivel. He is currently working on a 1/3 scale Lego version of the Taj Mahal in the back yard, although he recently got a Stop Work Order from the Zoning Board.
Bernard Wolfe: Bernard has been a vegetarian since elementary school while on a family vacation to the Outer Banks. While watching the sport fishing boats being unloaded at Oregon Inlet, he was so repulsed by the sight of a 60 lb Tuna that he has not eaten meat of any kind since. This decision, unfortunately, brought upon him untold mockery and scorn all through middle school, particularly from the alpha wolves. In, perhaps, an attempt to make light of that difficult adolescent time he was recently quoted saying "That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger…please pass the donuts".
