In the late Spring and Autumn Period, Zhao Jianzi went on a hunting trip and chanced upon a wolf which he shot with his bow and arrow. The wolf survived and fled despite its wounds. The wolf met a kind scholar named Dong Guo, whom the wolf pleaded with to save its life. Moved by the wolf’s words, Dong Guo helped the wolf by hiding it in his sack and directed Zhao Jianzi onto the wrong path when he asked where the wolf went. However instead of thanking Dong Guo, the wolf tried to eat Dong Guo in return!
Mr. Dong Guo is Paper Monkey Theatre’s adaptation of a Chinese classic story, where children learn about the limitations and consequences of being too nice, while getting to know the art of Teochew Metal Rod Puppetry. Coupled with modern theatrical elements, Mr. Dong Guo will definitely entertain everyone!
