The play was based on the children's book The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson. Ferdinand, although a bull, would rather sit and smell the flowers than participate in a bull fight. The play added to the original story by including a parallel story about the prospective bull fighter, who would rather be a dancer but wishes to please his father.
We thoroughly enjoyed the performance. It was pleasantly amateurish, the music was fun, the flowers (of course) were darling, and it was a fantastic way to spend an hour on a Sunday afternoon.
After the play we headed to Starbucks and spent the next hour sipping coffee and chatting about various things. Overall, we had a fantastic meeting, and I'm so glad Isa changed our minds at the last moment!
