Oh what a tangled web we’ll weave!

There are many accounts told of Anansi, the African trickster who often shows up as a spider and is considered to be the spirit who possesses the knowledge of all stories. Join us as we explore the folklore of this fantastic character, and watch the many ways we spin his sagas.

The cast includes James Brunt, Tresha Farris, Hossein Forouzandeh, Ronald McQueen, Rav’n Moon, Brihtney O’Brien, Artie Thompson and Lisa Young.
