Characters (9): Three storytellers, rain, fog, snow, mist, cloud, man.

Storyteller 1: One day all the different types of weather were up in the sky.
(All the weathers are moving and interacting with one another on the stage then the wind enters.)
Storyteller 2: The wind started to boast to all the other types of weather that he was by far the most powerful of all weathers.
Wind: I’m the strongest weather here and everyone knows it.
Rain: Wind, you are always boasting how strong and powerful you are.
Snow: It is all we ever hear from you.
Fog: Why don’t you just prove it once and for all.
Mist: I know let’s have a contest to see who is the most powerful weather.
Wind: I will take any of you on and blow any of you away.
Cloud: Do you see that man wearing a coat over there?
(Man walks on stage.)
All: Yes.
Cloud: Whoever can make him part with his coat is the most powerful. (All the weathers look unsure except for the wind).
Storyteller 3: All the weathers seemed unsure that they could beat the wind.
