Ronnie Burkett (Toronto)

FOR AGES 16+
100 people, 100 puppets, a secret location, and the one and only Ronnie Burkett!
Welcome to “The New Now”—a time when written language has been suppressed and forgotten and hand-drawn love letters have become a powerful act of defiance. Unlike anything you’ve experienced, this mysterious and thrilling new production offers each audience member the rare opportunity to hold a one-of-a-kind Ronnie Burkett hand puppet! Becoming a puppet chorus, the audience both witnesses and propels the story as it unfolds. An inspiring theatrical love letter for increasingly uncivilized times.
As puppetmasters go, Mr. Burkett is a benevolent god: indelicate, a little poignant and kind of fantastic.”—New York Times
