Rumpelstiltskin, Part 1


Next on the lineup from Five Fifths was a very loose adaptation of Rumpelstiltskin, packaged in contemporary terms. It was put on by O'Fallon Theater works, a local company. Grimm's fairy tales were not a big part of my childhood and I had to look up the story (see here). In this  production, the miller becomes a woman who seems to be a farmer. The daughter is something  of a political activist. The king is - well, you will figure it out.

What happens next will probably appear here on Friday. I think there will be an Arch picture tomorrow.

I find myself wondering if the "king" got booed.
