Description

Golden Thread Fairytale Players present

Leila’s Quest for Flight

at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology

written and directed by Torange Yeghiazarian

drawn from Palestinian folktales


When the optometrist shatters little Leila’s dream of becoming a pilot, a menagerie of mythic birds gather to help her accomplish her goal.


30-minute performance is followed by 20-minute Q & A session with the cast, as well as a brochure with information on the themes and background of the play and further resources for learning.


Golden Thread Fairytale Players create multicultural performances that draw from enriching folk tales and timeless children’s stories. Drawn from beloved Palestinian folk tales, Leila’s Quest for Flight incorporates music, dance, and physical comedy. These dynamic shows are entertaining for all ages, connecting diverse cultural traditions to contemporary themes. goldenthread.org/fairytale
