The Tell-Tale Heart
Adapted by David Treptow
Exploring the depths of sanity, morality and murder… with puppets?! Adapted from Edgar Allan Poe’s infamous short horror story, this production blends live actors, mask and life-sized puppets. Three hooded operators bring to life the Old Man, a wonderfully bony and decrepit looking life-sized puppet. The old man’s caretaker, played by a live actor, continuously affirms his sanity as he fixates on the old man’s eye, descending into madness and finally murder. Come join us as we tell the tale of a madman and see what lies at the bottom of his heart…
