About this show

Join the exploits of a mismatched band of cartoon stereotypes on a wild ride through an animated world. Presented in the style of a Commedia dell'Arte scenario gone berserk, watch as a young, idealistic upstart named Trouble steals the giant hammer that Esther, the bratty dictator, uses to maintain a monotonous, but peaceful order. See Suitor chase Damsel, while two Anime girls fight for the attention of Rockstar, a big stuffed teddy bear with a dark edge. Enjoy the sad songs and pontifications of Winston Puppet, while bombs explode, chaos ensues and bodies pile up. A violent social commentary exploring the rapid coalescence of media, politics and consumer giants, Cartoon proves there is nothing like a punch in the face to really get the blood moving! A major collaboration between two burgeoning collectives brings you this fully produced theatrical spectacle and multimedia event. This mediation on corrupt leadership, media saturation, and extreme violence comes complete with spunky costumes, trippy video animation, and outrageous stage combat all underscored with your favorite video game music. Cartoon holds you captive as the bodies pile up and the violence begins to creep off the stage and into the audience.
