Sunday marked the annual summer theatre presentation at the dazzling Dragon’s Egg in Ledyard, directed by Marvelous Marya Ursin of the Mystic Paper Beasts — against the backdrop of an outdoor woodland setting — where we all performed select Aesop’s Fables to a highly appreciative audience that embraced our work. They even forgot about the steaming heat. Yes, the show was that good! This magical event also celebrated the birthday of Dan Potter, an artist and a human being who graces this world with his very presence. So grateful to have participated again with all of the gifted individuals there who comprise an amazing ensemble!
