Forget Me Not
FEB 04–MAR 01, 2020 | Secret Location
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.
Press & Reviews
“As puppetmasters go, Mr. Burkett is a benevolent god: indelicate, a little poignant and kind of fantastic.” —New York Times
“Joyous (and frequently raunchy) form of resistance…a ceremonial experience that’s very hard to capture in words.” —Toronto Star
“Lively and raucous and tender and also a deeply longing work – longing for connection, for communication, for love, for safety, for ritual, for comfort… It was a wild ride that I’m glad I took, and commend to you as well.” —Mooney on Theatre
“Burkett’s big innovation this time involves his use of the audience. This is a fully interactive and participatory experience.” —Now Toronto
