Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes in
Created and performed by Ronnie Burkett
"It's a profoundly eerie, strange and strangely beautiful experience; theatre at its most startling, moment to moment." - Edmonton Journal
"An apocalyptic "what if?" fantasy from a master of his craft, Burkett's marionette show is brilliant [and] beautiful." - Vue Weekly
It is our pleasure and privilege to welcome Ronnie Burkett back to The Cultch! From Canada's foremost puppeteer and award-winning theatre artist Ronnie Burkett, comes the highly anticipated production of Penny Plain
. True to Burkett's provocative style, this gothic thriller marks an "end to civilization," a world which could only be imagined by Burkett himself.
Penny Plain is blind, but fully aware of the desperate state of mankind. Through encounters with survivalists, a serial killer, talking dogs and mysterious strangers, this apocalyptic story shows the funny and chilling consequences as Mother Earth cleans house and reclaims her ground.
Commissioned by the Citadel Theatre (Edmonton) and co-commissioned by the National Arts Centre
