Mr. Aesop’s Fractured Fables 4/23-4/30
GREEN OAK TWP.—When the Rabbit wins the race in the “Tortoise and the Hare,” you know that these are anything but the original Aesop Fables. This original play adds a modern touch, wit, and comedy to five well known tales, resulting in a hilarious and fun show for adults and children of all ages.
This play is the perfect way to introduce younger children to the joy of live theatre, but it also has the kind of “Shrek” wit that appeals to older children and adults. Written and directed by Anne Levy of Brighton, this production includes the fable of “The Lion and the Mouse” in which the Lion bemoans that lousy cable and internet in his neighborhood, “The Country Mouse and The City Mouse” with a mouse that tells off the cat for bullying behavior, and “The Tortoise and the Hare” in which the two racers decide that both should win, making the narrator look for a new moral because “Aesop sure isn’t going to care.”
