Reader's Theater by Brandon

THE MAGIC BROCADE

The Widow made brocades for a living. She made one of Sun Palace that she liked so much that when it flew away she fainted. Chen had to go and find it. He found Sun Palace and the brocade was there! He took it home the next day and when he and his mom took it outside it did it again but this time it stretched, growing larger and larger...

Here are some highlights of the play.

When the widow got home she showed the picture to her son, Chen. "Look Chen how I would love to live in this palace or at least visit it."
"Mother why don't you weave the picture as a brocade? That would almost be like being there."



She set up her loom and began to weave. Her eyes grew bloodshot, her fingers raw.



"Hello Deary! What brings you so far from home?"



"But, you won't get to Sun Palace by foot, so you better take my horse it'll show you the way."



"Thank you."



Before long he came to a sea full of ice, without missing a step the horse started jumping from one ice flow to another.



Thank you dear lady!



At last Chen's eyes would stay open no longer and he drifted to sleep on his chair.



Chen put them on.



He placed the brocade on a rock.



..."Quickly while the wind still blows, step into the brocade!"



And Chen became husband to Lien.

Brandon, I didn't know you were into theatre. You go.
I wish I could have been there to see that.

That's awesome you did that, Brandon! Was this something you chose to do, or was it something you had to do for a school assignment? Good job either way! :-)

It looked like Brandon might have been the only one not "reading". Did he have it all memorized?

Great job!!!!

I think there might be a brocade in my love story somewhere. And there must always be a rock of some sort. Preferrably a diamond!
