Tonight, we pick up where we left off in “The Story of the Fisherman.” Calvin, a fisherman out on his daily trip, has accidentally caught a barrel with a strange and unknowable creature inside. We will meet this being and his associates, and now Calvin must be the one to tell a story to save his life. Calvin’s story, “The King and the Sage Duban,” and the story within have been retold by Andrew Gretes. We’ll learn about the sickly King and the Sage Duban, who always travels with the wind.
