About this show

Award winning playwright and director Ping Chong joins forces with marionette artist and composer Erik Sanko and set designer Jessica Grindstaff of Phantom Limb Company to present the world premiere of The Devil You Know in the Ellen Stewart Theatre. The Devil You Know is a modern interpretation of the classic American short story The Devil and Daniel Webster about a poor farmer who sells his soul in exchange for financial prosperity. Using marionette and bunraku-style puppetry, revolving puppet stages, recorded dialogue and original music and multi-media projections, Ping Chong, Erik Sanko and Jessica Grindstaff will transform this Faustian tale into a hilarious and haunting mediation on lost souls, fool's gold and democracy's eternal promise for renewal. The Devil You Know is contemporary puppet theatre suitable for audiences ages 10 and up.
