Five favorite fables, retold by veteran storyteller Rand Whipple. These versions of Aesop's stories have a modern twist and a unique sense of humor. Includes The Milkmaid and her Pail, The Wind and the Sun, The Crab and its Mother, The Monkey and its Shadow and The Fox and the Crow.
This little maid has a bucket of milk on her head and big plans in her mind. (Not the best combination, as she finds out.) The Milkmaid and her Pail (moral: don't count your chickens before they hatch) is one of Aesop's best known fables. Storyteller Rand Whipple's loveable milkmaid can't remember the word for 'milk' anymore than she can make it to the market with her goods intact.

The Smiling Anteater is a collection of short stories unlike anything you've ever read. Or perhaps it is in fact by necessity similar to everything you've read in your life. What this means is explained in the first of the short stories, the Library of Borges. The other nineteen stories deal with matters as diverse as the emotional lives of jellyfish and the Paul Auster authorship hoax.
This play starts with Anthula, a young Greek girl, who has just returned from the marketplace where she listened to a man named Aesop tell some interesting stories, mainly about animals. She’s not sure she understands the morals, so she tells the stories to the audience who sees them unfold before them. Characters are clothed in ancient Greek costume but have modern attitudes.
Three fables from around the world are retold in this play. In the Grasshopper and the Ants, the grasshopper only wants to play all summer but the busy ants know they have to gather food. In Armadillos in the Road, the armadillo teacher and her young students are on a field trip, moseying along. A lion is terrorizing everyone in The Foolish Lion and the Clever Rabbit, a tale from India.
