This November, Puppet Showplace will host the internationally-acclaimed Canadian puppet company Les Sages Fous ("The Wise Fools") as they tour the Northeast with their show "The Orphan Circus." Les Sages Fous' celebrated "unusual" aesthetic combines puppetry, clowning, live acting, and ingenious production design, resulting in a fascinating and awe-inspiring theatrical experience.
 
Among the debris of a scrap yard two junk peddlers create a circus of derelicts and misfits. In the blind spot of the multinational entertainment industry, this little circus is a victory of the poor and the small; a place where the gruesome become the circus beauties, the old and rusted become the acrobats, and where even impossible love can be fulfilled. A haven for orphaned objects, recycled artists, and puppets born strange, this troupe is ruled with an iron fist by the mad impresario, Monsieur P. T. Issimo. Rehabilitation or exploitation? It is for you to judge, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Table-top puppets. $15/General Admission $13/Members. Recommended for Ages 13+
