Ever heard the saying, “One good turn deserves another”?

It means if someone does us a favor, then we should do a favor back.

We’re about to meet a fellow who does a friend a big favor, by getting her out of a tight spot. And in return, he gets some spots of his own!

Our story is called “The Bird of a Different Feather.” Versions of this tale come from parts of Africa.

We recorded this episode before a live audience of very enthusiastic kids and grown-ups at Round House Theatre in Bethesda, Maryland. On stage was a trio of actors whose voices you’ve heard in many Circle Round stories: Evan Casey, Kevin Corbett, and Dawn Ursula.

This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir. It was edited by Nora Saks. Original music and sound design is by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn.
