New York City
From the author of War Horse comes a full arsenal of live music, dance, and visual high jinks! The theater company Kneehigh and Emma Rice, artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe, return to St. Ann’s Warehouse with 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, adapted from the novella by Michael Morpurgo. This true tale of local townsfolk and the African-American soldiers sent to rehearse the Normandy invasion from their shores explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings. Seen through the lens of a little girl and her lost cat, 946 takes its title from the number of casualties sustained during these bungled maneuvers — a secret kept, until now, by the American and British governments.
