“Astonishing. Meticulous. Flawless.” – Oxford Culture Review
You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. This sold-out hit of the Edinburgh Fringe is a new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
All the drama, intrigue and madness of one of Shakespeare’s best known tragedies Macbeth in 80 high-octane minutes. Two actors bring this work to life by brilliantly and boldly portraying 20 characters.
By Lewis Hetherington and Ailie Cohen

This serene and beautiful creation…is a gentle philosophical piece of children’s theatre with a message for all ages. – The Edinburgh Guide
Puppetry and imagination merge seamlessly in this tale about a workaholic, with no time for fun in his life. All that changes when his suitcase takes him on a whirlwind adventure. At its core, this beautiful play contains a valuable lesson for children and adults alike, about the value of fun, and adventure.
By Michael Silverstone and Abigail Browde

NO LATE SEATING
“A lovely, haunting meditation on human connection, and disconnection. . . . A poetic evocation of our mostly unspoken—and un-called upon—dependence on one another.” —New York Times
The latest work by this Brooklyn-based ensemble tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?
Thurs., Jan. 25, 11:00-11:50 a.m.
Meet the company members of the Out of Chaos and Ailie Cohen Puppet Makers to learn about their work. Students of all disciplines and public welcome. Free admission.
