CANCELED - Puppet Crimes - A Spybird Theater Production (World Premier!)
This show is canceled, but we hope to reschedule with the artists. Stay tuned to mayostreetarts.org for details.
PUPPET CRIMES is a hilarious 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 at every turn this petty puppet is made the scapegoat for larger crimes. PUPPET CRIMES poses grotesque circumstances with a comic twist that explore the tradition of Kaspers character and its timeless relevance to todays world.
Ages 14 and up.
Funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
