About this show

Low-Budget Love Fest of Puppet Doom! presents a cornucopia of innovative and sometimes outrageous experimental new works for puppet theater and includes such new works as: - The Cat Who Came to Dinner, in which handpuppet humans and animals play "get the guest." - Yo! Yo! RoJo!, in which bluesman Robert Johnson's artistic crisis is solved by a Faustian bargain with hiphop devils. - Child Soldiers in Uganda - a docu-puppet fantasy contrasting the realities of present-day war in Uganda with the idyllic life of children in North America. - The Same Old Story, the Boston toy theater première of Italian playwright Franca Rame's gothic folktale about a girl and her foul-mouthed doll. - Ginsberg on Democracy, in which Allen Ginsberg, Donald Trump, Teddy Roosevelt, and Mahatma Gandhi meet in a café to discuss life and art. - Gay Pirates on Ice, a handpuppet love story about a pirate Elephant who discovers love in Antartica. - The Cry of a Mermaid in Love, an autobiographical toy theater version of a family history of emigration across the Mediterranean.
