Winner of LA Times' Best Production and OC Weekly's Best Play awards, acclaimed director Annie Loui and CounterBalance Theater present the worldwide premiere of yet another 'deliciously spirited production' (LA Times): Madame Modjeska’s Fairytale. Whimsical and imaginative, this hybrid physical theater-animation film follows Victorian fantasy characters as they explore the canyons surrounding Arden, a fairytale written by renowned Polish Shakespearean actress Helena Modjeska. Having relocated to the Wild West of Southern California in 1890, Modjeska’s cultural influence stretched across the region. Her estate and namesake canyon, both featured in this film, remain Southern California landmarks.
