In this episode from the well-loved Chinese epic adventure, Journey to the West, Master Tang San Zang and his disciples encounter the White Bone Fiend in their travels. Intent on dining on Tang San Zang, the demoness tricks him into expelling Sun Wu Kong, the Monkey God from the group. Will she succeed or will Wu Kong save the day?
Be delighted with this lively parable about trust. Friendship and compassion come alive with traditional hand puppets, rod puppets, shadow puppets and human actors in the hands of puppet ensemble, Paper Monkey. Young audiences take part in the battle between good and evil by assisting to determine the fate of the demoness in this classic tale with a twist!
