THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON was created by the dynamic PigPen Theatre Company, who toured this hit show throughout the country. An old man has the important job of filling up the moon with liquid light each night. But when his wife is drawn away by a mysterious melody, he must abandon his duties and cross the seas in search of his lost love. Along the way, he contends with apocalyptic storms, civil wars, monsters of the deep, irritable ghosts, and the fiercest obstacle of all: change. This play features actors playing instruments, sound effects created live on stage, and elaborate shadow puppets in an imaginative seafaring epic.
“This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded ... [The cast] asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us.
