Production Description
Inspired by the Japanese legend of the Crane Wife, Jen Silverman’s odyssey unfolds in the space between two worlds as Cassis embarks on a quest to save her brother’s ghost. Crane Story weaves puppetry, music, and ancient folklore to tell an imaginative, haunting (and humorous) story that captivates the hearts of audiences and never lets go.
