Prior to the show, the PlayGround Theatre hands out a study guide that includes facts, study resources, a map that tracks Ling Shih's journey (the equivalent of walking from Miami to Santa Barbara, according to the guide), and a cut-out tangram puzzle. The guide is geared toward children, but adults will get a kick out of it too.

Co-writers Stephanie Ansin (who also directs) and Fernando Calzadilla have created a wholly original fantasy rich in Chinese mysticism, magic, and wonder. We are transported to a different country and culture thousands of years in the past, but ultimately we discover the story is really about us all.
