Winner of the Theatre for Young Audiences National Playwriting Competition, this classic children’s story, inspired by traditional tales from Nigeria and Senegal, travels back to when the world was new, when Brother Sun and Sister Moon lived in harmony on land, and all was good, until Sun visited the Sea, and chaos ensues!

The National Playwriting Competition was established in 2001 to encourage the writings of new original works for children’s theatre productions. The winning script is awarded $1,000 and entered into the competition in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.
