The White Snake

12th Ave Arts
1620 12th Ave. Seattle

In her latest theatrical creation inspired by a classic legend, Mary Zimmerman re-imagines The White Snake, an ancient Chinese folktale in which a snake spirit transforms herself into a beautiful woman in order to experience the human world. Adventuring down her mountainside with her companion, Green Snake, White Snake meets and falls in love with the humble, virtuous Xu Xian and convinces him to marry her. Together, the three friends open a pharmacy, but soon the remarkable healing powers of White Snake draw the attention of a treacherous monk, Fa Hai. Outraged at the union between a mortal and a snake spirit, Fa Hai takes it upon himself to destroy it.
