After accidentally spoiling one little piggy’s birthday, nine little piggies decide to throw a surprise party for their friend. Working together, the excitement builds until they just can’t wait any longer.

This joyous family-friendly play reflects a world of fun and games and also reminds us adults not to take life too seriously.
