Wild Swan Theater Concludes its 37th Season with “Marketplace Stories—Folktales from the Arab World.”

Marketplace Stories—Folktales from the Arab World is a wonderfully comic collection of tales is set in a 19th century village marketplace that seems to spring to life straight out of the folk art paintings of renowned Lebanese American artist Helen Zughaib.  This lively and fast paced production is created, in collaboration with the Arab American National Museum, for elementary school children and their families.
