One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand.
For the world’s more full of weeping
than you can understand

by William Butler Yeats

Arne Zaslove’s response to Stone Soup’s Production:
There is a fine production of Alice in Wonderland currently playing at the little gem of a storefront theater Stone Soup on Stone Way. Don’t miss it as it’s one of a kind…an ensemble of fine young actors, all deeply committed to the brilliant language of Lewis Carrol’s masterpiece of the Theater of the Absurd, long before it was a style dubbed in the ‘60’s.
Gordon Coffey, a veteran director and theater artist, who was one of the founding members of the original Seattle Rep, has guided a group of talented young performers through the Wonderland of this classic tale. Every member of the tight ensemble plays several parts, and excels in all of them.
It is a treat to see this piece originally created by Andre Gregory in the ‘60’s for his rebellious company of alternative theater actors. I actually saw that original production at NYU when I had recently returned from Paris, …and the Stone Soup Production is equally faithful to the Lewis Carrol masterpiece. Don’t’ miss it!
