Additional Info

This exciting collection of stories from around the world deals with generosity and greed and offers a unique challenge to student actors and director. Each tale is simply and beautifully dramatized using different theatrical techniques. The hilarious Bantu tale, Anasi Finds a Fool, uses story-theatre, while Peter and the Hat, a traditional tale from Puerto Rico, is presented in mime, and Japan's hauntingly beautiful The Crane Wife, employs masked actors. Give and Take, performed on an empty stage with minimal costume pieces and props, leaving audience imagination to roam freely. A multi-cultural exploration bringing audiences to their feet.
