Recommended for grades K – 3rd

Like Aesop’s fables, Wiley and the Hairy Man is drawn from native folk wisdom. “Outwit the Hairy Man three times and he won’t scare you ever again,” says Mammy. Trembling, Wiley sets out for the woods, prepared to confront the Hairy Man; he looks fear in the face and outwits it. The adventures are presented in lyric poetry and mime. The actors become the woods, the cabin, and all the props, making Wiley imaginative and fun. A Joseph Jefferson Award winner for outstanding children’s play.
