Lamb and Mary were alike. Unbalanced. Flat-footed. High-strung. This is their story like you've never heard it--the tale of a loopy shepherdess and a depressive farm animal. In this version of the children's nursery rhyme, Lamb and Mary fall in love. They swoon, they are smitten. Then Mary has second thoughts. Lamb is a lamb, after all, not a man. Lamb, heartbroken, turns to drinking. Lamb goes to a madhouse. Mary buries her feelings. And then somehow, Lamb pulls it together. He leaves the madhouse mature--saddened but more dignified, ready for another chance to win Mary's heart. But will Mary let Lamb back into her life?
