“A dark and disturbing new live-action cartoon” (Globe & Mail) from the visionary creators at The Old Trout Puppet Workshop

Beware the Jabberwock!

Such is the frantic warning inscribed to us in the strange and ancient poem known as Jabberwocky… but what monster does it actually mean?  Join us on the journey of a young male hare – weighed down by the pressure to grow up and slay the Jabberwock, whatever that may be. Is it fanged or flapping, furry or finned, ferocious or formless? Is it outside our bedroom door even now, drooling?  Or is it already amongst us?

Do not fear: in this, their brand new puppet extravaganza for adults, the Old Trouts clutch their vorpal swords in hand, and valiantly promise to save us all from the things that haunt us in the night.

A piece of theatre inspired by Lewis Carroll that is, indeed, inspired” — The Globe and Mail
