On Saturday March 1st at 2pm, Tears of Joy presents
The Tell-Tale Heart
by Edgar Allan Poe, adapted by David Treptow.
Join us as we welcome the internationally-acclaimed puppet theatre Tears of Joy – and their performance of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tale. Adapted from Poe’s infamous short horror story, this production blends live actors, mask and life-sized puppets. Three hooded operators bring to life the Old Man, a wonderfully bony and decrepit looking life-sized puppet. The old man’s caretaker, played by a live actor, continuously affirms his sanity as he fixates on the old man’s eye, descending into madness and finally murder. Come join us as we tell the tale of a madman and see what lies at the bottom of his heart…
