Lightwire is back with a whole new story! We begin with Aesop’s classic fable of the Tortoise and the Hare but continue the story, which finds them ten years down the road now with children of their own and exploring modern-day distractions. Smartphones and video games create a new landscape of lost connections to life experiences. The Next Gen features Tortoise Junior and L’ill Hare in a whole new kind of race where their adventures lead them to unexpected territory. Old man Tortoise and big daddy Hare must unite to save and find their children despite their differences. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line? With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling, and the creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this tale into a new brilliant light!
