Synopsis"Maybe a policeman began laughing and fell in a well and came out with a wheelbarrow full of goldfish wearing new jewelry. How do I know?" In Carl Sandburg's world, words are full of mystery and characters crackle with magical possibilities. Wishes, Suspicions And Secret Ambitions celebrates Carl Sandburg -- poet, performer and visionary-- and his place in the literary history of Chicago. Sandburg's politics, poetry, music and Rootabaga stories are brought to life in a play that interweaves drama and dance, song and puppetry to evoke the rich language, imagery and provocative ideas of Sandburg's life and work.
