The people on earth need stories. - Their lives are empty. - They need stories to make them laugh, and think, and stories to inspire them and give them hope and stories to warn them of danger. - And they need to be able to share their own stories... Once upon a time in a rural village in Ghana, Nyame, the powerful Sky God steals all the stories and locks them up in a wooden box under his bed, leaving the inhabitants of the village with nothing. Everyone has lost all hope of getting them back until bold Anansi takes on the perilous task of confronting the Sky God. In this lively alternative to the traditional Christmas show, everything hinges on the completion of an impossible quest, forcing a small but brave spider to confront her uncertainties and find hope in the most unexpected of places. This play, based on research into traditional West African and Caribbean folklore, explores the joyous creative power of story-telling. A vividly textured and timely festive offering, it will delight seasoned theatre goers and family audiences alike. For all the family aged 6 and up.Author Lisa Cagnacci.
