$20 – $30

Wander through tales from creepy to strange in this brand-new look at some very old fables written by NOLA Project ensemble member Brittany N. Williams. Meet magical aunties, too-clever wolves, wicked stepmothers, foolish devils, and determined ghosts on a winding tour of five stories pulled from European and African American fairy tales and folklore.

This outdoor play is the perfect way to explore the Besthoff Sculpture Garden while experiencing live theatre that is bold, fun, family-friendly, and safe. Come and wind the trail of tales with us this fall!
