King Levi says that stories make your brain go fuzzy and your hands turn green. All children’s stories are banned in the kingdom of Levitas. It’s Susie and Shredder’s job to enforce the King’s law, shredding stories from dawn ‘til dusk. But today, Susie will read a story for the very first time.
Perhaps stories aren’t so scary after all.
(No actual stories were harmed in the making of this play).
