A coproduction with:
Not So Fable
The stories of Aesop’s fable brought to life through movement, music and poetry.
The Youth Theatre group of the New World Theatre presents an imaginative play of moral dilemmas and karma, communicated by young actors and brought into a modern day setting. Based on four of the ancient fables of Aesop, Not So Fable resonates the essential truths of human behavior that the ancient Greek writer embraced thousands of years ago.
Both complex and compelling, the themes of Aesop have become classic reading in classrooms all over the world enjoyed by children of every culture. Not So Fable has taken both the sharp insights and the gentle humor of the fable and translated it into scenes that are just as relevant today as in ancient Greece. Director Ruth Gillen has devised Not So Fable to “ explore themes of self image and reflection ” using the musical and stage talents of her enthusiastic young troupe.
The Youth Theatre is the young persons’ acting group of New World Theatre Club, Luxembourg. Along with their annual stage performances, the Youth Theatre has also performed at Villa Vauban and in Brussels at the Festival of Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS).
