    Inspired by Tolstoy's tellings of Russian folktales a century ago, this award-winning story theatre play is a celebration of the glory of story in a style at once primitive and sophisticated, entertaining, accessible and surprising. It is an ideal ensemble piece with a fresh blend of vaudeville, commedia, realism, farce and poetry. The play, composed of stories, clearly illustrates the essence of story itself as a human survival tool and art.
