The Cruel Circus: A Trouble Puppet Show
Salvage Vanguard Theater
Austin , TX
Share this event:

Trouble Puppet Theater Co. presents an original work of puppet theater featuring some of the strangest and most beautiful puppets you'll ever see.

A mysterious tinkerer brings to life an entire world of strange circus performers--some polished and complete, some clumsy and misshapen--then disappears, leaving them to make sense of what they are made for.

A new work of dark whimsy and much laughter from the company who brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, and most recently, Toil & Trouble.
