Fall 2021 in NOMA's Besthoff Sculpture Garden
Directed by Torey Hayward
Wander through tales from spooky to strange in this brand-new look at some very old fables written by NOLA Project ensemble member Brittany N. Williams. Meet magical aunties, too-clever wolves, wicked stepmothers, foolish devils, and determined ghosts on a winding tour of five stories pulled from European and African American fairy tales and folklore.
This play is the perfect way to explore the new addition to the Besthoff Sculpture Garden while experiencing live theatre that is BOLD, fun, family-friendly, and Covid-safe. Come and wind the trail of tales with us this fall!
