OR THE BRAVE LITTLE KID
directed by Rebecca Waxman
Adapted from the classic fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, Seven In One Blow, or The Brave Little Kid tells the story of a child living in the city who kills seven flies with a single rag, and makes a belt emblazoned with "SEVEN IN ONE BLOW" to commemorate the event.
As the Kid travels about, most people think the belt refers to seven people and assign the Kid all kinds of difficult tasks based on this faulty presumption. Along the way a few interesting things are learned: an Ogre finds that you don't always have to show how strong you are... sometimes it's okay just to be quiet about it; a girl realizes that when you tease people you are hurting someone who may be just like you; and a scary monster understands that because she is loved, she may not be so scary after all. In the end, the Kid ultimately discovers that a parent's love and care has no bounds.
Seven in one Blow is delightful fun for audiences of all ages.
