About This Show

Strange Tree Group presents The Mysterious Elephant and the Terrible Tragedy of the Unlikely Addington Twins (*Who Kill Him), by Emily Schwartz, directed by Carolyn Klein.

This is the tale of the horribly unlucky Addington twins and their quest to extract themselves from the all too tragic plot of the play in which they’ve been currently placed. Throughout the evening Esther and Edward Addington endeavor to triumph over their narrator, raise the dead, showcase a series of terrible events through song, empathize with unusual puppets and rescue a rather large mechanical elephant from the jaws of certain doom. All in under two human hours! Prepare yourself and your familiars to be both amazed and delighted!
