Maddi and Sofia are best friends. During recess time at school they race each other and climb the rock wall. Maddi is good at climbing while Sofia is a fast runner. One day Sofia accidentally discovers that Maddi has very little food in her fridge at home. Sofia wants to help her friend, but Maddi makes her promise to keep it a secret between the two of them. Sofia struggles with what to do next; can Sofia find a way to keep her word and help her best friend? Based on the book by Lois Brandt, this play is a gentle, yet sometimes hilarious exploration of friendship, empathy, and doing the right thing.
