Berwyn Avenue presented by Von Orthal Puppets
It's Summer 1971 on Berwyn Avenue in Chicago. We're bowling, boozing, and bar-b-quelling. Sin Blahute, age 10, is adventurous and always on the moveunless she's in her room singing along with her Singing Nun music box. Harm and Gay Martini's 15th anniversary bar-b-quellGAHD, can you believe it's been 15 years?is happening tomorrol. Layaway at Sears is the thing to do, and when Gay doesn't have enough for her shopping sprees, she just puts it on the charge!
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and Gram is the spirit. Motown is grooving, The Carol Burnett Show is must-see TV, and Vietnam is raging overseas. From the neighborhood watch committee meeting to the R&L Bowling Alley, blue collar living on Berwyn Avenue slaps you in the face in this all-puppet show. Laughter, tears, drunken debauchery Berwyn Avenue has it all. A powerful combination of story, music, imagery, special effects and humor makes this production profound, funny, and playful. For adults.
