... and come on, girls' literature is everyone's literature.
Do you remember in Noel Streatfeild's Ballet Shoes when Pauline and Petrova played Tyltyl and Mytyl in Maurice Maeterlinck's The Blue Bird? And how the book included two large scenes from the play within its text, so we could understand what was going on?
When I was a kid I used to act those scenes out with my Barbie dolls, holding the book flattened out under one knee and reciting Mytyl and Tyltyl's lines.
So when I got into grad school, and they asked me what play I wanted to direct, I said "well, what about Blue Bird?"
Here are some production photos (used by permission).
First: Tyltyl and Mytyl by the window, watching the party outside.
Second: Bread, springing to life.
