A Play – “The Chief and the Thief” Vocabulary
My mother took my sister and me to see a play at the arts center. The play was about an Indian chief who liked to make pies. It was an exciting play to watch because a thief took a pie from the chief’s house. This made the chief grieve. The chief was filled with grief over the pie being taken and he told his friends he was very sad.
Then the chief and thief decided to have a cooking contest to see who could make the best pie. The chief made a pie. The thief made a pie. The thief wanted to “tie” for first place with the chief. But the chief made the best pie and won the prize.
The thief did not win, but he went home with his pie and told his wife a lie that he won the pie-cooking contest. The thief’s wife did not see a prize. There was no prize money or ribbon for a prize.
This was a clue that her husband did not “tie” with the chief in the pie contest and that his story was just not true.
The wife asked her husband (the thief) for the money that was due as he had borrowed her money to buy the ingredients needed for the pie. “Yes!” she smiled, “You need to pay me back the money that is due!”
And, when he did that, the thief and his wife each had a piece of pie!
