The production is a partnership between Lorain County Community College Theatre Department and Spark Theatre Company. When two strangers arrive in the city of Logos, they call attention to themselves by claiming to be able to make the most magnificent and magical clothing. Emperor Caecus cannot resist such a claim, especially when he finds out that the magic in the cloth means that those who are unfit for their position cannot see the garments made from the fabric. The ensuing silliness can only be sorted out by the most intelligent and sensible person in the empire, a child name Captiosus. This adaptation is written by Cleveland playwright, Erin E. Dolan!
