The story includes short retellings of sections within the tale, told in multiple styles: melodrama, Elizabethan, '80s hip-hop slang, and avant-garde. Learn More

    Something is amiss in the court of the great emperor of China. Obsessed by his worldly possessions, the emperor has grown blind to the needs of his people and the real treasures of life. Ancient Oriental gods, the nightingale and the audience join forces to cure the emperor of his possessive and grasping ways. An important achievement in the often underestimated but difficult genre of participation plays. Learn More

    Refreshingly antic, this irreverent version of Aesop's fable is written in the style of Italian commedia dell'arte. Using authentic staging and stock characters of commedia—the miserly Pantalone, the bragging Captain, the romantic lovers, the trickster Arlequin, plus an endearing lion—this fable becomes a colorful theatrical experience with zany comedy and the warmth of friendship.
