Stolen Fire is a tale in the Native American tradition of Coyote Trickster stories, but with a unique twist to the traditional plot.  Coyote steals fire, and firewith all its strengths and weaknesses—plays an essential role.  The narrator of the play interacts with the audience while highlighting the concepts of peace and war, cooperation and greed.
