WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Using puppets, clowning, video projections, and his trademark dark humor and meta-theatrics, Founder Greg Allen presents Carlo Collodi's original 1883 masterpiece through the eyes of Mary Shelley's nameless wretched Monster. Definitely NOT a children's story, this stage adaptation includes all the violent and outrageous scenes from the original novel. Allen parallels the stories of these two motherless, un-born souls to explore human nature, mortality, fatherhood, and the meaning of life itself. Featuring Neo-Futurist Dean Evans as Pinocchio, puppets by Blair Thomas and Dan Kerr-Hobert, and an all-star cast, "Pinocchio/Frankenstein" promises to be amongst the best of Allen's award-winning work.
