In Aesop? Who’s Aesop? Gavin and Maura are having trouble getting along as they throw accusations and insults at each other. Grandmother comes to the rescue as she engages them in some fables of Aesop which apply to the children’s daily life. A group of actors, young and old alike re-enact the fables for the children and the audience.
In A Walk in the Woods, we see the tales of Goldilocks, the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, the Three Pigs, and Hansel and Gretel, all blended into one delightful play while staying true to the original stories. Goldilocks, forest-savvy from having to survive in the woods without a family, is on the run from the Three Bears but takes time to help Red Riding Hood, who is leery of her stepmother’s motivation in sending her out into the woods at dusk with a basket full of food and a bright red cloak. Along the way, they are saved by the Woodsman (who also happens to be Hansel and Gretel’s father) from the zany Wolf (the same canine who plagues the Three Pigs).
