"Ethereal and epic" --American Theatre magazine|
Angels and demons are among us, serving God and Lucifer, fighting in our wars, upholding an ancient order. What happens when some of them begin to doubt the rules?
Part I of Trouble Puppet's epic three-part tale is a spectacular Miltonic saga, told through tabletop and shadow puppetry. (Parts II and III to come in 2016 and 2017; each show stands alone as a complete dramatic work.)
The show is created by the company (a mainstay of Chronicle Top-10 lists) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, and Hyde & Jekyll.
ASL interpretation offered May 17.
Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.
