A short summary of the fables we are going to play
The Cicada and the Ant :
During the summer, an ant makes provisions for the next winter. The cicada, who spends her time singing, sees it and makes fun of it, until the winter cold arrives: the cicada finds itself without provisions, without "a single small piece of fly or worm", without "a grain to subsist" ... she then asks the ant for help. But the ant who is not a lender tells him : "You are singing (all summer long) I am very glad: Well, dance now."
The fox and the raven
This is the story of a fox who one day met a raven that held a beautiful cheese in its beak. Desirous of stealing it from him, the fox flattered his penmate as much as he could. By dint of soft words pronounced, the raven opened the beak and let slip his booty.
The hare and the turtle
Everything starts from a challenge by the hare turtle, a frantic race for which the turtle bet hare that he will be unable to reach a point named before it. The hare has fun of the turtle's temerity and accepts the challenge! He had only four steps to declare his victory but it turns out that he takes his time, grazes, takes a nap and does not take his opponent seriously. As for the turtle, she goes "from her senator's train" and "hastens slowly" to the point where she is about to cross the finish line, to see her so close to winning, the hare hastens but all his efforts are vain, he will not be able to catch up with the slow turtle.
