Quintessence's Lee Cortopassi creates a modern adaption of Aesop’s Fables, a collection of short morality tales for children that have been told since 600 BC. Keeping the delightful anthropomorphic animals of the original stories, this world-premiere adaptation uses contemporary language and situations to re-imagine these timeless tales of friendship, trust, honor, common sense, and morality for the whole family.
