Scenario for a puppet play on earthquake-resistant houses was written for playing in earthquake-prone countiries. The main players of the play is a little big and a wolf, which based on the well-know tale of ' the three little pigs'. In that story three pigs build their houses with straw, woodn-stiks and bricks. Only a house with bricks survived from the threat of a wolf. But for earthquake-prone countries houses of bricks can be fatal.

In this new story a wolf and a pig is a good friend for each other and they try to build their own houses. The pig is careful enough to ask for advises to owl, which is a symbol of wisedom, and to mole, who know the ground very much. They taught him to build his house on hard ground with braces. The wolf is easy-going, on the contray, and built a house on a soft ground without any brace.

One night a large earthquake hit their houses......
