Exploring the depths of sanity, morality and murder… with puppets?! Adapted from Edgar Allan Poe’s infamous short horror story, this production blends live actors, mask and life-sized puppets. Three hooded operators bring to life the Old Man, a wonderfully bony and decrepit looking life-sized puppet. The old man’s caretaker, played by a live actor, continuously affirms his sanity as he fixates on the old man’s eye, descending into madness and finally murder. Come join us as we tell the tale of a madman and see what lies at the bottom of his heart.
