Be Careful What You Wish For
By Patrick Rainville Dorn
Receiving your heart’s desire can sometimes have unexpected, comical results! In this delightful collection of folk tales, four magical wish givers teach apprentices about instances of wishes gone amiss, where the recipients of the wishes ended up preferring things as they were before the wish was ever granted. Action-packed, classic tales from Russia, Japan, France, and Germany come to lighthearted life in this show. A nearsighted gardener learns that some things are best not seen too clearly. A hard-headed stonecutter aspires to become the most powerful thing in the world and learns about power in the process. A house-hungry fisherman’s wife allows her greed to push upward mobility a bit too far, and a sausage-savoring woodcutter’s wife nearly cuts off her husband’s nose to spite his face.
