Summer 2019

This year, the Mettawee River Theatre Company will present THE RINGDOVE, which we first produced in 1988. Outdoor performances of THE RINGDOVE will take place in upstate New York, Vermont and Massachusetts in July and early August and in New York City in early September.


THE RINGDOVE is drawn from THE PANCHATANTRA, a collection of allegorical tales whose origins reach back over 2,000 years, to ancient India. The central characters are a crow, a rat, a turtle and a gazelle, whose adventures, behavior and relationships reflect many aspects of human nature. The production tells the story of the creatures’ growth in friendship with each other, as they achieve strength and harmony through cooperation and understanding.
