The Snapping Turtle’s Lament

Category: 2009-2011

November, 2010

The story follows a young woman as she struggles to acquire the money she needs to go back to university. She is “helped” by a man and a woman, puppeteers of sorts who have made her their job of the moment. As they all work towards the point, they discover it not to be what they previously thought. Swathed in absurdities, the show leaves you laughing, wondering, and, hopefully, a little lighter on your feet.
