Inspired by a Nasruddin Hodja story, Scent Tales is a delicious-smelling story of coming to one’s senses.
An eccentric narrator weaves a bittersweet tale of a baker and her sister. Just how much is a memory worth? Would you pay for the smell of a fresh baked bread? Or is it priceless?
Enter the world created by debuting company Little y Theatre, a playful hyper-reality which will stimulate your senses in magical ways.
Be enchanted by the puppetry and poetry, delighted by the baked goods, and seduced by the Love Bread.
“Baked my heart into these treats … mixed in my soul.”
