Puppet Crimes by Jana Zeller's Spybird Theater
Puppet Crimes is a raucous satire about what it takes for a common puppet to survive in the
face of tyranny, war and economic oppression. Keeping up a 400 year old tradition, German
hand puppet heroes Kasper and Gretel struggle to survive in an old shack on the margins of
society. As the centuries pass through their little puppet booth, war is always raging and
Kasper tries to avoid getting blamed, arrested and drafted, yet this petty puppet always
ends up being the scapegoat for larger crimes. In a grotesque world of gun-runners,
outhouses, and a declining monarchy, Kasper (with the humor and wit of the common man)
ducks out from under authority and manages to survive another 200 years. The third
character in this spectacle is the villain Dietmar, corrupt emissary to the king who deals in
weapons and bullies Kasper with his gun wielding authority. Each scene poses a grotesque
circumstance with a comic twist that explores the tradition of Kaspers character and its
timeless relevance to todays world.
This is an action packed hour-long show for teens and adults, inspired by German, British
and Italian hand puppet traditions with songs and musical interludes played on the ukulele.
