Hare and Tortoise is a modern take on Aesop's Fable, and a fun, fast paced play about the power of friendship.
This play follows the adventures of two children as they become best friends despite their differences. Harri is a very competitive child who loves to race against others, while Tatta is a more laid-back child who prefers to take things at her own pace.
