Broadcasting Theatrical Fables
Brought to you by E. Gray Simons III
(PROFESSIONAL, AMATEUR, EDUCATIONAL, COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY, YOUTHEATRE/CHILDREN’S THEATRE)
Experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Learn the tragic truth about “The Ants and the Grasshopper.” Get the scoop on “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” and hear both sides of the story in “The Lion and the Mouse.” All this is set in a TV Broadcast format with locations in the studio, a commentary panel set, and on the ground reporting for the ESOP Network. It’s a clever mash-up of several of Aesop’s fabulous fables, with strong lessons inherent in the dramatic action.
