Synopsis

Three Japanese folktales are told in story-theatre versions, designed to be performed as a trilogy. The Magic Fan is a humorous tale about a magic fan that can make noses grow long and short. The Princess of the Sea is a dance drama that takes place in a fishing village, and in the fantasy kingdom of the Dragon King of the Sea. Finally, The Little Peach Boy is a hero story that is set in a mountain village, and on the Isle of the Devils, where the Ogres live. The stories are as familiar to Japanese children as Cinderella is to Americans. The narrative theatre style is derived from the traditional Bunraku, Kabuki and Noh plays. The author, who has lived and studied in Japan, gives detailed suggestions for each aspect of production.
