The Lion or the Mouse?

Toni Morrison, Slade Morrison, Pascal Lemaitre

In this charmingly subversive reinterpretation of a classic tale, the Morrisons and Pascal Lemaitre take a hilarious look at bullying. The cocky lion, the self-proclaimed baddest in the land, believes himself invincible until he gets a thorn stuck in his paw. Only a weak little mouse can help him, but then the lion must indulge the mouse’s ridiculous pride and appetite for power. We, the creators of Who’s Got Game?, were inspired by the wonder of Aesop’s Fables – their vitality, their endless demand for new interpretations. In our versions the original stories are opened and their moralistic endings reimagined: the victim might not lose; the timid gets a chance to become strong; the foool can gain insight; the powerful may lose their grip. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. More than a play on these beloved fables, Who’s Got Game? is AESOP LIVE! ALL AGES
