Play script. Refreshingly antic, irreverent treatment of Aesop's fable, written in the style of Italian Commedia dell'Arte. One set, 16th century Italian costumes. Cast of 5 men, 1 woman. One of the most popular children's plays ever written, ANDROCLES AND THE LION has been produced in twenty countries. In Commedia tradition, a group of strolling players set up their stage and give a performance. Using authentic staging and stock characters of Commedia -- the miserly Pantalone, the bragging Captain, the romantic Lovers, the trickster Arlinquin, plus an endearing Lion -- Aesop's fable becomes a colorful theatrical experience. The play sky rockets with zany comedy. It also glows with the warmth of "Friendship." Androcles and the Lion is a prize winning play, applauded around the world, again, and again!
