Heather B. Rule has taken old Chinese folklore and created four fun plays, so the children of today can enjoy these rich stories from her great-grandparents’ homeland.
The first play “The Great Chinese New Year’s Race,” explains the selection of the 12 animals for the Chinese Zodiac.
In “Little Lilian & Nian, the Monster from the Mountain,” a little girl discovers the weakness of a ferocious beast terrorizing her village.
“The Three Water Goddesses,” is a new take on an old classic where a few villagers fight and win wishes from mischievous aquatic deities.
In “The Dragon’s Gift,” we learn the written word is a much needed offering to a selfish king in search of the Elixir of Life.
