WHITE LIKE ME: A Honky Dory Puppet Show
Performed by Paul Zaloom; Created with Lynn Jeffries

A TIMELY RESPONSE TO THE CURRENT DISCUSSION ABOUT RACE IN AMERICA

Puppeteer and political satirist Paul Zaloom employs the old school drawing room medium of toy theater to tell the story of the archetypical white man and his universe. White-Man leaves his planet Caucazoid, travels through space, civilizes the earth (populated with aliens), becomes a philanthropist and savior, and finally, freaks out about his approaching minority status.

The puppet cast is drawn from the gigantic collection of knick-knacks and brick-a- brac collected by the artist over the years: weird junk, busted toy cars and dolls, random tchotchkes, old action figures, and other charming rubbish. Plus Zaloom's creepy dummy sidekick Butch Manly drops by to add his bilious two cents.
