Genre: Comedy
Tales from the Land of Ice

Written by Jeff Lewonczyk, Directed by Hope Cartelli

A frozen northern country. Mammoths and walruses. The legendary death of a saintly child. A twisted winter
celebration. The Granduncle Quadrilogy is a holiday special for a made-up holiday. Listen to Granduncle, ancient
storyteller and veteran of an endless war, as he and his fellow citizens mix folktales, fictional ethnology, and war
stories to conjure a mordant yet moving portrait of an imaginary icebound world that curiously mirrors our own.

Piper McKenzie ( has been a fixture of the downtown and Brooklyn scenes since being founded by
Hope Cartelli and Jeff Lewonczyk in 1998. Called "brazenly experimental, unapologetically populist, and surprisingly
endearing" by, Piper is dedicated to exploring the middle ground between high and low culture,
comedy and tragedy, history and the future. Notable recent productions include this past spring's hit comedy of war
and sex Babylon Babylon, the sci-fi romance serial Lady Cryptozoologist, and the celebrated Bizarre Science Fantasy
dance-theater series, whose most popular installment, Macbeth Without Words, was a standout of 2007's Pretentious
Festival at The Brick.
