* HappilyEverAfter: [[spoiler:Averted. In the guilty ending, the Boy Who Cried Wolf reveals he's not sure Wolf was the one who took his sheep; and in the innocent ending the Wolf decides that ''maybe'' he'll think about reforming. The closest thing to a happy ending the hung jury ending, but even then it's subverted due to being so open-ended.]]

*BrattyHalfPint: The Boy Who Cried Wolf, to the extreme. To the point of admittedly ''breaking the law'' for his own entertainment.

''Big Bad'' is a play written by Alec Strum and licensed by Pioneer Drama. It showcases the courtroom trial of the [[TheBigBadWolf Big Bad Wolf]], with the [[FairyGodmother Fairy Godmother]] and [[WickedStepmother Evil Stepmother]] as attorneys, and the characters of [[Literature/TheThreeLittlePigs The Three Little Pigs,]] [[Literature/LittleRedRidingHood Little Red Riding Hood,]] and [[CryingWolf The Boy Who Cried Wolf.]]

There are two versions of this play: the standard version, and a musical version with six songs added in. The play also has three different endings, in which the audience gets to decide the Wolf's fate.

!!This play provides examples of:

*BitchAlert: In the musical, Evil Stepmother has her own ''entrance music''.
*BitchInSheepsClothing: Fairy Godmother.
*{{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Judge Wise Old Man.
*[[spoiler:DownerEnding: The guilty and innocent endings are supposed to make the audience doubt their decision, so they end up fulfilling this trope.]]
*FairyGodmother: Ms. Fairy Godmother is an interesting example, as she's portrayed as shrill and demanding, to the point of coming off as less sympathetic than Evil Stepmother.
*HappilyEverAfter: [[spoiler:Averted. In the guilty ending, the Boy Who Cried Wolf reveals he's not sure Wolf was the one who took his sheep; and in the innocent ending the Wolf decides that ''maybe'' he'll think about reforming. The closest thing to a happy ending the hung jury ending, but even then it's subverted due to being so open-ended.]]
*[[Spoiler:MaybeEverAfter: The hung jury ending.]]
*OurFairiesAreDifferent: Fairy Godmother is a lawyer, of all things.
*[[spoiler:TwistEnding: The guilty and innocent endings, which are written to make the audience doubt their decision.]]
*WickedStepmother: Naturally, Evil Stepmother is implied to be this. [[spoiler:Although it seems she's decided to change for the better, since she tells Wolf she needs to talk to her stepdaughter before the final verdict is delivered.]]
