Incorporates three traditional tales into one full length perfomance with characters who cut through shallow concerns to demonstrate what really matters. In the Twelve Stones an orphan must achieve the outrageous tasks her evil stepmother devises; in Salt is sweeter, the youngest princess proves her love for her father by refusing to flatter him despite the consequences; and, in Nasrudin's coat, appearances are everything. Includes rehearsal and workshop ideas. Suggested level: secondary.
