The play is based on a collection of Old-English stories, but the adaptation is decidedly contemporary.
Many productions have dressed the cast in period dress, which is fine, but feel free to bring the characters into modern times. What modern connections can you make in the play?
A vignette play is a collection of short scenes on a theme. You'll love working with the variety and flexibility of the scenes. Your actors will love the fast pace and fun characters.
There's more. Every Theatrefolk vignette play holds the unexpected. A showcase monologue. A dramatic moment. A change in form. A left turn.
Ideal for classwork, competitions, and more!
