A Story Once Told

A set of 13 original short plays retelling pieces of an old, old Briar Rose story. Set in a proverbial far-off kingdom, at some point between the eleventh and eighteenth centuries (an Italy or Germany of the Renaissance perhaps?), the comical overarching story is the betrothal, marriage and escape of a beautiful princess. Teeming with floating fish, foolish owls, advice-giving rabbits and unicorns backwards speaking, the plays are part of a larger series of plays inspired by the paintings of James C. Christensen. Presented by The Minnesota SkyVault Theatre Company.
