  §  Dramatis Personae Lil Toot (m), 18 or older, a tugboat, shy New Yorker; Gull (m), 20, a seagull, Brooklyn accent, cool, man, cool; Lady Liberty (f), The Statue of Liberty, French accent, passionate.

   §  Synopsis “Lady Liberty, disappointed in quotas put on American immigration, wants to return to France where symbols are respected and women of a certain age are considered attractive. She enlists Lil Toot to tow her across the ocean. He is sick with love for her, but tongue-tied and prone to seasickness. Gull has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lady to remain.

  §  Comment “Wacky comedy written to be performed in a swimming pool or other body of water. Totally non-realistic. For example, Toot's costume would require a large innertube or raft. Gull and Toot should be good swimmers. No foul language, but not for children.  

  §  Themes anthropomorphism, American-French relations, boat, immigration, New York City, ocean voyage, Statue of Liberty, seasickness, swimming pool.
