Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang
Book by Mordecai Richler
Music and lyrics by Britta and Anika Johnson
A fresh new adaptation of Mordecai Richler’s beloved classic. Jacob, the youngest in his family, has to repeat everything twice in order to get older people’s attention. Sent to the store to get tomatoes, Jacob upsets the owner and a policeman and is charged with insulting behaviour to a big person. Sentenced to hard time on Slimer’s Island, he’s promised help by Child Power’s Shapiro and O’Toole and goes on to save himself and the other kids on the island. In the process, Jacob discovers the truth about its nasty head, the Hooded Fang. Filled with hilarious and poignant new music infused with modern dance-pop, 80’s hair metal, and classic soul.
