By Robin Frohardt, US

Frank, who is obsessed with cleanliness and order, is convinced that pigeons are plotting against him. But really, are they merely trying to warn him of an impending disaster?

The Pigeoning is a darkly comedic yet heartfelt story that spins Bunraku-style puppetry and lo-fi special effects into an epic tale about the illusion of safety and control in the context of the end of the world.

A funny, dialogue-less performance that will enthrall school-age children and speak to adults, whether they are seasoned theatre-goers or newcomers.

Each performance is followed by a post-show dialogue with the artists, where audiences will also get to see the set and puppets, up close.
