Young Audiences Of Houston presents Mr. Hare Takes Mr. Leopard For A Ride
Mr. Hare Takes Mr. Leopard For A Ride is one of the many trickster tales from West African folklore. Mr. Hare is a frequent figure in the Hausa culture of Niger and Nigeria and is the granddaddy of the American Br’er Rabbit. Nonchalant Mr. Hare decides to teach Mr. Leopard a lesson in being polite, even if he is big. For this pair, the brain is bigger than brawn.
This performance is based on Plays from African Folktales by Carol Korty and is a dramatization of one of the four folk tales from Africa.
