Synopsis

World, World, Go Away! is an interactive children's play. The audience participates by taking a vote as to what action the protoganist should take. The lead boy wants freedom, to be a grownup, and to have adventures on his own. He gets his wish when a magician appears and grants him what he desires, but at a steep price. The boy enters the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, then Hansel and Gretel, and is finally flying on the starship Enterprise towards the end of the universe. His desire to be free is miscontrued by the magician, and he turns the boy into a tree. The boy realizes that the magic of his youth grants him the freedom he desires, and so he wishes himself home.
