Anansi and the Story Box is a tale from Ghana in Africa, about the legendary spider-man hero of the Ashanti tribe, and how he brought stories to the world. It bears certain similarities to the Greek myths of Pandora and Prometheus, and includes a plot point similar to The Tar Baby, which made its way from Africa to America.
We come to you from Reno, NV, where we are putting together our new show that will premiere this summer. We recently returned to our roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we hiked a trail at Land's End, near The Golden Gate. We also took a ride on the Niles Canyon Railway, a vintage train line that runs between the Bay Area towns of Sunol and Fremont. The Fremont station is located in an area known as Niles, which was the early home of silent movie-making before it was relocated to Hollywood.
We hope you will enjoy this story, and the great lengths to which our resident arachnid went to get it.
