Aesop and His Fables

Produced by Barking Gecko Theatre Company in July 2002

Programme Notes:
“Whether for the political purposes or pure entertainment, Aesop’s moralistic animal stories have long been a popular source of inspiration and guidance for Philosophers, Ambassadors, Kings… and Kids!
Join Lion, Fox and Mouse, a raggle-taggle band of theatrical players, as they re-count the ancient stories of Aesop’s fables. This hilarious troupe brings together a delightful theatrical treat, to tell the tale of how Aesop, a Greek slave, gained his freedom through the telling of his captivating stories”
