Storytellers Jennings and Ponder have selected folktales in which the wolf is a sympathetic character. In one story, an old wolf is just trying to get some breakfast, in another, a wolf mother adopts a baby, and in a third, a wolf helps a dog. The two have a distinct method of storytelling that will captivate listeners as it does their live audience. Sometimes they speak in unison; in other moments they banter back and forth, and echo one another, sometimes creating zippy dialogue, sometimes braiding their voices together in a fast-paced yet exact way. Both excel at depicting different characters. Ponder's animal creations are especially fine, with her chicken voice a real standout. Lilting musical interludes further enhance this unique production.
