The Beggar and the Wolf
285 Pembina Hwy (South of Confusion Corner)
Presenting a hilarious holiday play for the WHOLE FAMILY!
This comical re-imagining of the 13th century folk-tale is loaded with outrageous puns, slapstick humour, and quirky characters.
When the medieval town of Gubbio is stalked by a lone wolf, the entire population is afraid to move about. Facing the horrifying prospect of becoming poor and hungry (and even stinky, since they fear drawing water from the well to bathe), the mayor fetches Francesco: a holy beggar from the village of Assisi, who is reputed to have a wondrous way with animals.
The antics that ensue for survival unite young and old, rich and poor, with a heart-warming message of human togetherness for the holidays.
Geared for the Whole Family * Babes in Arms Permitted
