Albin and Lila
A play, adapted from the book by Rafik Schami
All seems to be perfect at the farm. The pigs wallow in their muddy-pool. The hens are scratching and picking. The cock has an impressive muck heap. - Everybody's perfectly happy!
Everybody? - No, not everybody.
The pig named Albin is very unhappy. Because he is all white: his snout, his rind and his curly tail. No other pig wants to play with "creamcheese" Albin. One day, sitting in his old tire, he meets Lila, a chicken that cannot lay eggs any more.
The two outsiders become close friends: playing or telling each other's stories at day and secretly marveling at the moon together at night. They learn to highly appreciate their friendship. But when the nasty fox threatens Lila's egg-laying colleagues, there's a chance for these two unusual friends to serve the farm in an unexpected way.
A play about friendship and how it feels to 'stay outside'.
