In the Mirror: Three Tales From Asia

A set of three tales from Japan and Turkey, these stories all feature atypical heroes. A favorite is the little old lady outsmarting two Oni (Japanese trolls) who imprison her in order to sample her delicious cooking. The show uses a clever stage that rises and folds out of a decorated box. It features rod puppets, paper puppets, masks, and a combination rod puppet/rod marionette.
