The clever spider of African folklore takes the stage in this spirited production. Long ago, the great Sky-god, Nyame, kept all the stories in the world locked up away from everyone. To him the stories were too precious to be shared with ordinary folk. Anansi, the clever spider asked Nyame to return the stories to earth. After much pestering, the Sky-god agreed to release the stories, but only if the spider could pay his price. And what a price it was! Nyame would release the stories if Anansi could bring him the Hungry Python, the Sharp-toothed Leopard, the Stinging Hornets and the Unseen Fairy. Two actors play all the characters in this delightful one hour production.
