Old Sultan the farm dog has grown so old that his teeth have fallen out and he can no longer frighten away Wolf who threatens the sheep and other defenseless animals on the farm.  The animals chide and berate him and distrust his ability to defend them and Farmer Dan plans to shoot him despite his many years of faithful service.  In an effort to regain respect, Old Sultan conspires with Wolf who professes that he will attack the Farmer’s baby only to let himself be chased away by Old Sultan to make a hero of him. But when Old Sultan finds out he has been duped by Wolf and his cohort Boar who only use the ploy to get a sheep as a reward, Old Sultan must outsmart the conniving duo with the help of the most unlikely comrade of all, the Three-legged Cat. Christopher Miller cleverly adds a number of delightful and interesting characters to his story and a level of humor that is sure to entertain young audiences. ”$20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $40 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
