For a school project, CJ had to design a set for a production of The Three Little Pigs. CJ being CJ, he insisted on reimagining the classic story and making a statement. He wrote a new narrative, printed and cut money, created miniature Pride protestor signs and turned my disco-ball-shaped cup into a house that could withstand any wolf’s huffing and puffing. CJ’s thoughtfulness and hard work paid off when he aced the assignment.
He’d like to share his work with you…
The Three Little Pigs in 2019 (by CJ Duron)
Once upon a time, there were three little pigs.
One little pig lived in a house made out of money because all he cared about was money and keeping his money. He didn’t want to give it away or use it to help other people.
One little pig lived in a house made out of a disco ball that used to hang at place that had a drag brunch. He lived in the disco ball house with his husband and their son who was a drag queen named Pinky Punch.
And, one little pig lived in a house made out of hate signs because she didn’t believe in equality and wanted everyone to know it.
When the big bad wolf came to the house made out of money, he huffed and puffed and blew the house down.
When the big bad wolf came to the house made out of hate signs, he huffed and puffed and blew the house down.
When the big bad wolf came to the house made out of a disco ball, he huffed and puffed but the house was solid and filled with love and couldn’t be blown down.
The wolf realized that he couldn’t blow the disco ball house down. The only reason he was sad and angry and blowing peoples’ houses down was because his parents didn’t accept him for who he was.
Later, the wolf became good friends with the gay couple and their son. He now stays with them in the disco ball house for a safe and accepting environment.
