Mrs. Murphy's English class is struggling to brainstorm new ideas and plot twists for their writing assignments. So, when students find this message from a leprechaun, they decide an adventure may just be what they need to break out of their writer's block:
There’s treasure waiting for you-
Will you be so bold?
With a wee bit of luck,
You may find a pot of gold.
Just follow the rainbow,
Every color has a clue.
And if you can catch me,
I’ll give the gold to you!
But can the students use their knowledge of the history of St.Patrick's Day to find the gold? And, will they be able to use their exciting adventure to write the perfect story?
This one act play, featuring five speaking parts, follows the history of St.Patrick's Day from St.Patrick's teachings in Ireland to today's symbols and celebrations of Irish culture.
