Synopsis


Tess McChesney Kunik as Fox at Plays & Players Theatre (Philadelphia, PA; photo by Rachel Dukeman).

Turtle carries the world on her back, leading us into the performance space, taken over by nature. The Red Fox stares back at us, her smile unveiling her sharp teeth. Silent, determined, the Great Blue Heron enters, searching. Otters Earle and Pearl raft together, joyfully drifting with the current of the Delaware River. The ground vibrates, the wolf’s howls grow closer, the moon’s reflection sings a lullaby, and the animals must survive the land and each other, weaving together the wampum belt of their lives.
