Veanne Cox

A comic tale focusing on the importance of empathy and kindness, this adaptation of the Grimm's tale, "King Thrushbeard," is set in Federalist Virginia (about 1815). Similar to The Taming of the Shrew, the story concerns a haughty heroine, her exasperated father, and her new husband's elaborate plan to humble her spirit by sending her to work as a kitchen maid in the home of one of her rejected suitors.

(20 minutes, ages 5-adult)
