The Lullaby TreeThe Lullaby Tree
A no-holds-barred literary and theatrical extravaganza of ideas, The Lullaby Tree reels riotously between prose and verse, vulgarity and beauty, farce and heartbreak, earthiness and mysticism. It is meant as much to be read as it is to be staged. This is the first play in Wim Coleman’s forthcoming “Aesopeia” cycle about the life of the fabled fabulist Aesop.

Drowned in Madeira Wine, two flies began to recover life.—Benjamin Franklin

“They had been drowned in Madeira wine…. Having heard it remarked that drowned flies were capable of being revived by the rays of the sun, I proposed making the experiment upon these.… In less than three hours, two of them by degrees began to recover life. They commenced by some convulsive motions in the thighs, and at length they raised themselves upon their legs, wiped their eyes with their fore feet, beat and brushed their wings with their hind feet, and soon after began to fly.… I should prefer to an ordinary death, the being immersed in a cask of Madeira wine, with a few friends … then to be recalled to life by the solar warmth of my dear country!”

—The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
