Production History

The Poppet Show: Childish Plays For Grown-ass People  | Open: 09/30/10 Close: 10/09/10
Short attention-span plays for people who would go see theatre every night... if it weren't so damn boring.*

When was the last time you went to a play and actual felt like you were playing?  The Poppet Show is the most fun you’ll have at the theatre this fall.  In At the Public Burning Place, a couple undertakes a ritual burning of each other’s most cherished possessions in order to settle an argument.  Do you and your brother still fight like kids?  When you finally find out what the adult siblings in I Got Your Nose are arguing over, you won’t believe your eyes.  Filled with laughs and just creepy enough to get you pumped for Halloween, The Poppet Show adds a refreshing smack of immaturity to a nice, sophisticated night at the theatre.

*Disclaimer: The Arcade is a group of wise-asses who take theatre seriously.  The Arcade in no way guarantees that any patron, viewer, or witness of The Poppet Showwill be engrossed, amused, tickled, stirred, shaken, brought to tears, spanked by the Dark Mistress of Gaiety, or even kept awake.  But we bet you will.

 

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN OF CELEBRITIES APPEAR IN THIS SHOW.  BUT THEY WOULD IF WE COULD MAKE THEM.
