Puppets at Night: The Hoarding Show by Carole D'Agostino
December 9 - December 10, 2011
Puppet Showplace Theatre revives puppetry series for adults with Boston-area debut of THE HOARDING SHOW
“The Hoarding Show” is about the clutter we keep, mentally and physically, in our lives. This multi-puppet, one woman show, designed and performed by Carole D’Agostino, features three separate tales of hoarders: the story of the infamous Collyer Brothers told with intricate shadow puppets; a renter facing eviction depicted with miniatures, and an object theatre satire that markets the positive aspects of hoarding. The Hoarding Show will be presented with Trash: A Love Story, an original work by Boston-based artists Woellert & Clark.
