A colorful collection of Chinese folk tales dramatized in an exciting story-theater form. East meets West. Performed in the traditional style of the Land of the Dragon, these playlets combine various types of drama - comic, and adventurous poetic - enhanced by music and mime. Although each play is unique and self-contained, they are linked by a beguiling money who uses his magical powers to aid the heroes and heroines to defeat the villains, providing a theater experience of fantasy and fun. Winner: American Alliance of Theater and Education Distinguished Play Award.
