About the play:
In a not so far-away land, a plant sighting is a rare and exciting event. Pao, a 7-year old boy, and his cat, Bruce Lee, have befriended this plant. They must now protect it if they want to save the world. From sinister scientists to grumbling goons, every powerful grown-up in the city seems to be after the plant. Will Pao and Bruce Lee win the war against scary adults?
In the middle of this adventure and chaos, he comes across the lost forest, the real home of the plant, hidden and thus safe from humans. A paradise that must be protected at all costs. Even if the job is too much for a seven-year-old.
