CapriUni BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales (228* d) RE: BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales 11 Sep 11


I recommend it. There was a version made for television back in the '90s; it might be available on DVD.

Last year, though, I saw a production put on by the local Evangelical Christian college. And they saw fit to change it, by framing it as a child's dream, rather than letting it stand on its own. I suspect, perhaps, that the second half, when the characters fight back against the Narrator, and take ahold of their own destinies, is too much for a culture that takes the Book as the ultimate, unquestionable Authority in All Things. At least they didn't fiddle with the central narrative.
