Will you be my friend?
All the Little Gentleman wants is a friend . . .
A friend he can sit in the sun with and listen to the birds.
A friend to walk with and share his cookies.
But nobody seems to like the Little Gentleman and nobody wants to be his friend.

The Little Gentleman thinks he will live a sad and lonely life forever . . . until one day he is woken up by a curious dog who just wants to play.

An energetic show that is a playful celebration of friendship and acceptance.
