Once upon a time Mr. Muffin was young, strong and proud. He could carry a whole cucumber on his back! Now he is tired and grey, and sits alone in his house remembering. He’s had a good life, so he makes a list: 1 very wise and kind wife; 1 little house with its own mail box; 4 furry little kids. And sometimes mail in the mail box. GOODBYE MR. MUFFIN is a storytelling performance with three actors. In an atmosphere of warmth, humor and respect, they tell the story of the last days in the life of a beloved guinea pig. Mr. Muffin is not well and is about to die. This is sad, and everybody left behind grieves. But Mr. Muffin has had a good life. And maybe death is nothing to fear.
