All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young
pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who
understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous
rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman
family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider,
Charlotte, who proves to be "a true friend and a good writer."
Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the
"miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning
of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur
doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful
play about friendship.
