I’d like to present a short play entitled “The day the food came”…

You can have as many ‘actors’ as you wish, however they fit into four roles: Big Fish; Little Fish; cardboard box; Shrimp; Live Food.

In the première, Big fish was played by Mollies and Platys; Little Fish was played by baby Mollies, baby Platys, Enders Guppies and some tetras; Shrimp were played by some, erm, shrimp; and Live Food was performed by by daphnies and brine shrimp…

Shrimp :
   “The food god is coming. We can feel his presence in the ground”.
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Food? Food!”
Shrimp :
   “Be patient… the food god doesn’t only bring food. Sometimes he brings death or small ornaments.”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooood!”
Shrimp :
   *sigh*

Meanwhile, elsewhere…

LiveFood :
   “It’s got brighter. And warmer. We must be out of the fridge. Wake up guys. Wake up! Ergh – that’s not Bob, that’s an empty shell. Warming up, we’re warming up, we must be about to escape to the great oceans our great * X^87585 grandfathers told us about!”

Back in the tank…

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooooooooooooooooooood?”
Shrimp :
   “The ground moves again…”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Foooooooooooooooooooooood!”

LiveFood enter stage… top.

LiveFood :
   “We’re free!”
BigFish :
   “More mouths to feed? Damn.”
LittleFish :
   “Hello! Do you want to be friends?”
Shrimp :
   “Oo, these old shells are tasty…”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “They’re edible? Omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom”
LiveFood :
   “Nooooooooo…!”
BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Omnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom”

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Nom?”

BigFish & LittleFish :
   “Where’d all the food go?”
Shrimp :
   “Some say the Food God bringeth and he taketh away. Others think you’ve gutsed the lot.”

BigFish :
   “There must be something else to eat…?”
LittleFish :
   “Nooooooooo…!”
