In this play, a young princess’ refusal to help an elderly woman resulted in her being cursed to live like a frog for many years, and in her search to break the old woman’s spell, the princess frog encounters a viceroy who needs her help. She agrees to help him, and in exchange, he makes a false promise to her just to get what he wants, never intending to keep his promise. (McGraw-Hill Treasures, 2009)
