WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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 ancient knowledge. With a very old 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 novel by Russell Hoban. Those under 17 must be accompanied by adults. No children under 11 admitted.
