“The Tale of Jemima Canard ” at Annex Theatre

Beatrix Potter meets Sigmund Freud in this creative adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved children’s story about a duck who meets a sly fox, but believe me, this production is not for children. It’s got pathos, flirtation, sex, and violence served up by a stunning cast of humans who turn into animals with just the addition of a bill, a nose, a tail, or a hat. Jillian Vashro as Jemima, while a bit too much like Blanche DuBois, is appropriately vacuous and sexually ripe, just as she should be.

See my full review in The Seattle Times of April 26.

Through May 21 at Annex Theatre (206 728-0933 or info@annextheatre.org or www.brownpapertickets.com).
