Theatreworks’ production of Charlotte’s
Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a
pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a
problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer
and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman — she will
create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte
weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures
his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale, featuring mad-cap
and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love, and the
true meaning of friendship.
