dc.description.abstractBufano is eager to give the marionette-theater-producer all the encouragement, help, and liberty he can for engaging performances. Three of the eleven shows proposed here deal with Aesopic material. Aesop's Jungle (15-25) is a farcical rendition of several fox fables, including FWT, FG, and the story of the fox who got in the granary but could not get out again. Some notes immediately following give tips, e.g., on how to make a slightly expandable fox who can get caught going out the whole through which he came in. Androcles Likes Bananas (47-54) alludes to Aesop and calls this lion the direct descendant of the lion who spared the human Androcles. In a surprise ending, Androcles bites off the head of his trainer but then gives it back for a bunch of bananas. The Three Partners (81-92) works off of Aesop's A Lion, the Fox, and the Ass. The lion here gives the ass three chances to divide their booty of fish; he does so each time by making three equal piles. The lion simply devours him. Again, there are helpful notes for the director just after the script (93-4). He urges letting the lion be the absolute bully, the ass be entirely stupid, and the fox the epitome of slyness.en_US
