Namaste, wa ho te sen. Welcome to six more globe-trotting one-acts with various plays for ages 8-18. Flex-gendered roles and cultural insights are incorporated into plays from Africa, Finland, India, Russia and the USA. Discovering inner qualities beyond appearances, modern day children time-warped back to pioneer days, children and parents at odds with each other, and what brings happiness in life are some of the timeless and universal lessons that folktales bring to bear on our own journey.

Titles Include:
The Healing Leaves, a folk tale from Russia
Johnny Appleseed in Cyberspace, a folk tale from the United States
Search for Perfection, a folk tale from Nigeria
Song of the Sea, a folk tale from Finland
The Hand of Friendship, a folk tale from India
The Prideful Princess, a folktale from the Ashanti People of Ghana

Each play is accompanied by cultural/historical production notes and a glossary or foreign words.

All of the multicultural plays in each of the three volumes of All the World’s a Stage were first performed by MetaStages, a youth theatre outreach program at Penn State University. The plays were developed from folktales by MetaStages founder and director, Joann Rose Leonard.
