Once upon a time there lived a boy called Liang. Liang was poor, his family was poor, even the cats, the pigs and the rats were poor. But one day Liang meets a new friend, a magician, who gives Liang a very special gift, The Magic Paintbrush. Follow Liang's adventures with his magic paintbrush and his struggle with the greedy Emperor in a magical play, for ages three and above, newly adapted from a classic Chinese Folk Tale.
