Paradise Pearl is a short play written by Rebecca Lott. There is great pleasure in reading plays, and Paradise Pearl is nothing short of that; it has been a delight to read. It takes place in Sophie and Tubert’s room. It’s time for bed, and their father will tell them a bedtime story. They travel to Paradise Island where they meet two boys and pirates! The story is so vivid that, in the end, one is left with the ever-present question - is this just a bedtime story or did it actually happen? There is something powerful about dreams that allows us to escape from reality. Bedtime stories are a perfect way to wrap up a day and finish off with an adventure, another country, mysteries, and much more.
This play is a mixture of the movies Hook and Bedtime Stories; both are extremely loved by kids and myself. Paradise Pearl is imaginative and exciting. While reading it, I was just imagining how it would look on stage and I am sorry that I won’t be able to see it enacted. Rebecca Toll brings to life one of the things that children desire most; that their adventure stories come true. Seeing a bedtime story as a play is a genius move; both children and their parents will enjoy watching this play. Adventure stories are timeless and there is nothing like creating one of your own. I sincerely hope this play travels throughout the world and becomes a part of everyone’s life.
