FOREST CITY | This year's Forest City Middle School play, "Blather, Blarney and Balderdash," will be presented at 7 p.m. Friday, March 16, in the high school auditorium. 

In this comedy a trio of leprechauns try to help tongue-tied shepherd Fin O’Grady learn to tell a story and win the hand of his one true love.

Assisted by the wee folk of Ireland, "Blather, Blarney and Balderdash" enacts three Irish folk and fairy tales:

• "The Hunchback of Knockgrafton," in which a simple man’s gentle nature wins him an unexpected prize and a cruel counterpart learns that it’s not a good idea to mess with little people.

• "The Griffin’s Feather," in which young Aidan bravely encounters a sneezing girl, a frenzied farmer and a bombastic boatman before snatching three feathers from a hen-pecked griffin in order to cure a sleeping beauty.

• "The Bird, the Mouse and the Cricket," in which a courageous lass and three magical animals risk their necks to help a sour prince regain his lost laughter.

At last, the shy Fin discovers that a story is a treasure that increases the more you share it.

No admission will be charged for the play.
