Lee the squirrel is not cute. Or cuddly. Or adorable. She lives in a trash can and she’s totally fine with it. But one day she gets whisked away to a weird new world of green trees, fresh air and forest creatures. To be honest, she’s kinda freaked out . . .
Come join Lee on her magical journey from the frantic, trash-munching life she knows, to real friendship, peace, and self-knowledge. Presented with live Brazilian folk music, story-telling, and movement, Lee and the Tallest Tree is a 30-minute 2-person play that offers moments of startling transformation. Simple objects like hats and chairs transform to become parts of the forest, or the creatures that live there. Musical instruments transform the silence into a cityscape or a forest at night. And Lee finds out how to transform her tough-talk into real courage – by opening her heart.
