The Red Thread

The PlayGround Theatre Presents
The Red Thread
Book by Stephanie Ansin and Fernando Calzadilla

A widowed weaver has dedicated three years of his life to creating one magnificent silk tapestry. Anxious to sell the tapestry so they can use the money to create luxurious lives, the weaver’s two older daughters steal his work before it is finished. Mortally betrayed, the weaver collapses, and his youngest daughter takes it upon herself to retrieve his masterpiece. Her ensuing adventures challenge her mind, body, and spirit and ultimately bring her true love, inner strength, and a glorious reunion. This original play is inspired by Chinese folklore, myths and mysticism.
