The tortoise may be slow, but he's killing it onstage, much to the hare's dismay. Get every punchline straight from the reptilian comedian's mouth in this fractured take on a classic Aesop's fable that subtly teaches, and encourages discussion of, the concept of perspective. Includes a condensed version of the original tale.
