Anastasia Krupnik - Summer Play
Adapted by Meryl Friedman.
Anastasia Krupnik is opinionated, sassy and funny, really funny. Anastasia is 10 years old. In this warm family comedy we see the world through Anastasia’s eyes. She has a mother, a father, a grandmother, a teacher and a best friend! The performance runs about an hour with no intermission, and is enjoyable for anyone over the age of about six.
