Patchwork Puppets Parading on Mercury
By the Are We Delicious? Ensemble
Designed by Laurie Everitt
Directed by Trevin Gay
Madisonís own Are We Delicious? and Mercury Players Theatre team up to create fun night of crazy puppets within the Patchwork World of local designer Laurie Everitt. Everitt built each puppet by hand based on the creative ideas of the Delicious ensemble. The ensemble then worked with their custom puppets and each other to write scenes in a topsy-turvy world where Mercury has gone into retrograde! Oh no!
Starting with the barest outline, each puppeteer in the Are We Delicious? ensemble writes scenes that are stitched together into a complete comic play in only one week. Itís a mad dash to opening night as scripts are written, puppets sewn and lines learned. Packed with wit, wisdom and a lot of anxious energy, Delicious is always fresh and a little dangerous, but when it comes together, a wonder to behold.
Patchwork Puppets Parading on Mercury is a show for adults.
Writer/Puppeteers: Casem AbuLughod, Stacey Garbarski, Gina M. Gůmez, Craig Johnson, Jaclyn June Johnson, Autumn Shiley, and Tony Trout
