FARCE. Inspired by the Russian fairytale, “The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship.” The Tsar is offering his son in marriage to a maiden who can present the Tsar with a flying ship. The youngest of three daughters, who is called “Fool” by her family, heads out to find a flying ship. Along the way, Fool meets an old woman who tells her how to find the flying ship but reminds Fool that she must be kind to everyone she meets. Fool boards the flying ship, sets sail to the Tsar’s palace, and meets a host of odd characters with extraordinary talents: Barely Perceptible, who can hear all the beautiful sounds in the world; Eagle-Eye, who can see a speck of dust on an ant; Swift-Goer who can run exceptionally fast; Devour, who can’t get enough to eat; Guzzle, who can’t get enough to drink; Straw-Slinger, who carries a bundle of magical straw; and Twig-Tosser, who has a stack of magical twigs. Determined not to lose to a fool, Fool’s older sisters plot and scheme to win the hand of the Tsar’s son, but not without making utter fools of themselves! Audiences will love this play’s foolish, frolicking folly.
