Set: Changeable backdrop with basic staging to indicate different locations.

Prince Tartaglia's life is filled with misery until an evil witch and her equally evil henchmen curse him to search for three giant oranges. But this quest proves more fruitful than anyone could have imagined as a once-lonely prince discovers love, friendship, and laughter when he encounters wizards, monarchs, and a wild narrator who isn't sure how far removed from the story he really is. All the raucous slapstick of the classic Commedia dell'Arte scenario by Carlo Gozzi, distilled into a fast-paced one-act. (A full-length version of this play is also available.) Read More
