THE DOWRY OF PRINCESS TALIA is a sly and irreverent 20 minute children's play for children of all ages that takes old tales and turns them topsy turvy. It is a fractured fairy tale featuring gentle giants, woebegone witches, and dragons who'd rather play than spit fire.

    This is a delightful romp through fairytale-land or Massachusetts or where-you-will. Rubber ducks that lay golden eggs? No problem. Evicting witches from gingerbread houses? That may be a problem. You find yourself rooting for heroes and pseudo-villains as the play races through tales leaving belly laughs in its wake. Sweet and sassy, it's a people pleaser for all ages.
