ABOUT THIS SHOW

In a bizarre and irrational world, a man is condemned to death for an absurd crime, and sent to a surreal prison to await his execution. But the prison may not be what it seems...

Alternately disorienting, absurd, hysterical, and hopeful, this great novel by one of the 20th century’s masters is brought to the stage by Rough House and Sweven Theatre with their signature combination of playfulness and strangeness, full of surprising twists and turns, and told through a combination of puppetry, masks, and imaginative storytelling.

Created by: Michael Brown, Mike Oleon, Jackie Penrod, Claire Saxe, and Corey Smith
