    Directed by Tara Kaine
    Written by Joelle Sherman & Tara Kaine; based on "Five Children and It" by E. Nesbit

    E. Nesbit’s classic story uploads perfectly into our present day instant wish world, where everything is now and new, with 1 hour shipping. Bored out of their minds, five siblings on vacation are about to implode on each other when they stumble across a cantankerous… creature. It’s scruffy, mean, and weird, but it grants wishes. Perfect, right? The siblings are about to discover that everything they ever wished for was nothing they ever wanted.

    An epic adventure across real and imagined worlds, filled with wild and unstable characters on the edge of big discoveries!

    Exit, pursued by bear. Shakespeare’s play of mystery, passion, jealousy, and love. Suspecting his queen of infidelity with his best friend, a jealous king intends to execute her and abandon their newborn child, but the child is saved by the appearance of the bear, and reemerges years later as a free-spirited young woman. Full of clowns, commoners, nobility, righteous anger, and true love — and, of course, a bear.
