Riddley Walker
Two thousand years after the collapse of civilization, in one of the last nomadic bands left in an increasingly settled land, a boy named Riddley Walker turns twelve years old and becomes a man of his people. They are outsiders in a culture where packs of wild dogs prowl the landscape, roving puppet shows propagate a historical dogma against technology and cleverness, and secretive sects work to rediscover knowledge of ancient weapons--the 1 Little 1 and the 1 Big 1. With a very old Punch puppet and a black dog for allies, Riddley escapes from the tragedy and authority of his culture and reintroduces comedy and anarchy to his world.

Riddley Walker is adapted for Trouble Puppet Theater Co. by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins, from the award-winning novel by Russell Hoban.

Trouble Puppet Theater Co., recipient of such B. Iden Payne Awards as Outstanding Director of a Drama, Special Certificate for Puppetry, and Outstanding Original Script, is dedicated to the creation of outstanding works of puppet theater for grownups. This production employs tabletop puppetry inspired by the Bunraku tradition and supported by an original score by Justin Sherburn as well as shadow puppetry and a layered sound and image design.

This production of Riddley Walker is featured in the October issue of American Theatre Magazine.

Group sales welcome! Director/cast talkbacks available for student groups.

Not recommended for children under 16. Those under 17 must be accompanied by adults. Strong language and mature content.
