The Mettawee Players return to the lawn of the Sandgate Church with a performance of their new production, The Ringdove. It is an allegorical tale about friendship drawn from The Panchatantra, a collection of stories whose origins reach back over 2,000 years, to ancient India. The central characters are a crow, a rat, a turtle and a gazelle, whose behavior and relationships reflect many aspects of human nature. The production tells the story of the creatures’ growth in friendship with each other, as they achieve strength and harmony through cooperation and understanding. The show will incorporate a range of masks, puppets and other visual elements. Rain date will be Wednesday, July 24 at 8:00. For more information visit their website: mettawee.org.
