Androcles and The Lion

Androcles and the Lion, the story of a slave who befriends a Lion, is a refreshingly antic, irreverent treatment of Aesop’s fable, written in the style of Italian Commedia dell’Arte. A group of players set up the stage and give a performance capturing many of the Commedia’s stock characters: the miserly Pantalone, the bragging Captain, the romantic Lovers, the trickster, and the endearing Lion. This centuries-old tale is one of the most popular children’s plays ever written, with its enduring themes of freedom and friendship.
