Cinderella in Muddy York  

History and fun are integrated in this inventive retelling of the classic tale, set in pioneer-era Upper Canada, ingeniously staged with rod marionettes in a traditional puppet theatre that cleverly transforms into scenes evoking early Canada.

Walidad the Grass Cutter  

Based on Puppetmongers travels in Iran in 1976 and 2004, this moving tale of a poor man whose generosity inadvertently draws him and a friend into the dangerous society of powerful people and high finance.  A stunningly beautiful world of imaginative experience.  Just right for Asian Heritage Month.

Walidad the Grass Cutter is suitable for Grades 4 – 8, (also plays well for adult audiences).

Audience maximum 250 (either sitting on the gym floor or in raked seating).  This play requires a raised stage, as the puppets are manipulated at the performers’ feet.
