Improv Playhouse brings the famous trickster from West African folklore to life in this production, designed for ages 5 and older.From the Improv Playhouse site: “This silly yet serious adaptation of Anansi and the Sky God follows Anansi, the human, who lives today in 2023 as they journey with their namesake, Anansi the Spider, to discover the story of their name. This play invites us to bring the story of Anansi the Spider into the present. It invites us to collaborate with our history. It invites us to be silly and joyous. It invites us to be clever and resilient. It invites us to allow our past to live within us and fuel us. And it invites us to be proud of who we are and where we come from, as we become our own Givers of Story.”  Designed for ages 5 and older.
