AND SOW, TO REAP

by Michael Butler

And Sow, to Reap is a one-act play based upon five of Aesop’s fables: the boy who cried wolf, the young man and the swallow, the honest woodsman, the blind woman and the doctor, and the goose that laid the golden egg. Woven from these five discrete stories, the play is a multilayered yet singular tale of causes and consequences, re-telling familiar stories in poetic and surprising ways, set in that iconic elemental location: the village. Relying on actors to create characters, setting, and sound effects – using only poles for props and locations – the play is both minimalist in its staging and versatile in its style. It is suitable for casts of varying sizes and varying gender composition.
