A Village Fable (and more!)
Adapted by James Still, based on John Gardner's novella In the Suicide Mountains
Directed by Lynda Sharpe
An incredible journey of humor, heart, and heroes, A Village Fable is a musical about three people who are shunned for being different: Chudu the Goat-Man, Armida, the blacksmith's daughter, and Prince Christopher, the violin-playing heir to the throne. These three stories weave in and out of one another, intertwining and finally overlapping when each character is pushed to the brink by pressures to conform to social, political, and gender roles.
A Village Fable will represent the USA at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland August '04.
