A Brave Grandmother Searches for the Dragon KingBy Tanglewood Marionettes of Ware, MA

A terrible drought has overtaken the land, and the world has turned brown and lifeless. The Dragon King is ruler over all things water, and the people are beginning to wonder why he has not brought the life-giving rains in such a very long time.

A wise and fearless Grandmother is determined to find out why the Dragon King is holding back the precious rains – even if it means a journey to the bottom of the sea!
This underwater fantasy is based on Chinese folklore and tells the tale of an intrepid Grandmother who journeys to the bottom of the sea in search of the elusive Dragon King, and the answers to why he has forsaken the land above.
