When Wilbur is in danger of a trip to the butcher, Charlotte is determined to save him. She begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some Pig” to persuade the farmer to let him live. It’s the beginning of a victorious plot which ultimately ends with the now safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This beautiful, knowing play about friendship, sacrifice, compassion and bravery will weave its way into your heart and leave your audiences totally enchanted.
