The Queen of the Apes will be unveiling a new piece as part of PuppetBlok at Dixon Place, Thursday, October 12, 2017
Treat as Urgent and Get Back to Me takes its text directly from a Facetime Conversation with a friend who undergoing treatment for a brain tumor and spam emails that leverage cancer and other tales of woe to prey on the credulous and compassionate. No penises will be enlarged, but a breed of mutant puppets will be metastasized from a trio of spectra nurses live onstage.

With Marjorie Duffield, Chris Lindsay-Abaire, Stephen O’Rourke, Vanessa Petrarca and Stephanie Summerville
