"Mother Goose would have you believe that 'Jack & Jill' is just another harmless childhood nursery rhyme," read press notes. "Or is it just another fairy tale? As Mother Goose begins to compose the story of their lives, Jack and Jill long to escape Nursery Rhyme Land to live their own Happily Ever After. Their best friends, Bo Peep and Georgy Porgy, try to protect the couple, knowing all too well what a foul, tyrannical duck-tator Mother Goose can be. Accompanied by the famous jazz trio, The Three Blind Mice, these four friends sort through jealousies, fears, sexual indiscretions, and a political conspiracy involving one rather well-known Egg."
