The lovable trickster Hershel, like his cultural counterparts Anansi and Coyote, charms audiences with his wit. Adapted from Portland children's book author Eric A. Kimmel's folktales, these stories leap from the page in a celebration of storytelling that emphasizes the power of humor to overcome hardship. With timelessly entertaining nonsense, two actors will become many in this dynamic and memorable production.
