    This one-act comedy retells the myth in which Hades, god of death, kidnaps Persephone, goddess of life and spring. But while Persephone is usually presented as the sad-eyed queen of the underworld, here she is a happy breath of spring that makes life glitter wherever she is—even in Hades. In addition to the comic conflicts surrounding the situation, however, there is a deeper theme of the relation of life and death. This coupling is significant, since life and death are in fact inseparable, inevitably linked together. In this insoluble link there is also a hint of the nature of real love. Learn More

    Here is another delicious mixture of fairyland fantasy and modern social realism. King Cole is un-merry because he has three daughters of marriageable age—and no prospective sons-in-law to take them off his hands. A professional hunter comes to rid the kingdom of a dragon, but the local environmentalist thinks dragons should be protected as an endangered species. There's a well with magic powers and a frog. An Old Hag is troubled with inflation—the price of lizard tongues has gone out of sight! There is humor in the villagers' reactions to all this. Learn More

    Highly intelligent, energetic and ambitious Figaro wanted more than anything to be rich and famous so he could enjoy the splendid life of 18th century France. But he had no chance of succeeding because he was born a second-class citizen, and life for him and the other servants was so unbearable that whispers of revolt drifted through the musty air of the servants' quarters. The tricks Figaro thinks up to get even with the aristocrats produce one of the world's funniest comedies. Learn More
