Two plays for children based on traditional tales. Scene changes were made by the actors in view of the audience, using trapdoors in the stage, to reveal a camp fire, a market stall, a tree made of gauze which grew, held by pulleys. A chest could be emptied and filled with props, such as food, or utensils, from behind the set.
