The king is lost, the queen is buried alive, the kingdom is in ruins, and all is bleak . . . but this is a comedy after all! When nobody else's worthy of the title of hero, it's up to twins Renzo and Barbarina to unravel the mystery of the Green Bird in time to save everyone from themselves. The wild, chaotic road to "happily ever after" is paved with curses, clowns, demons, enchanted fruit, and a talking statue who keeps losing control of the story he's narrating. This ain't your grandma's commedia dell'arte. (A full-length version of this play is also available.) Read More
