Hare & Tortoise

Hare & Tortoise is a whimsical retelling of one of Aesop’s best-known fables about two friends who have opposite approaches to just about everything. Hare wants nothing more than to speed through everyday life and make time pass faster. Tortoise prefers to take her time, tending her garden and celebrating each season of life. This fun, treasured tale tells a timeless story of friendship, change, and the excitement of growing up.

Hare & Tortoise, by Brendan Murray, will play Saturdays and select Sundays from January 8, 2022 - March 6, 2022 in FST's Bowne's Lab. Subscriptions and single tickets are on sale and can be purchased by clicking the button above or by calling the Box Office at 941.366.9000.
