Brother Coyote wants one thing and one thing only: to catch and eat one of Dona Conchita’s plump chickens. However, quick-witted Sister Fox is always one step ahead of him, waiting to trick him with clever schemes to keep all the chickens to herself.

“Brother Coyote and Sister Fox” will be performed by Thistle Theatre, which is making its second appearance at the center since the tale’s debut in 2013.

Children of all ages can experience the bilingual adaptation of a traditional Mexican folktale at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta.
