The Jester And The Dragon
The Jester And The Dragon ran from February 7th-14th, 2018 at The Tank @ 36th Street and marked our inaugural play of SMALL PLAYS FOR GIANTS.
Come see Mary’s final performance of her world famous finger puppet show. Her fingers aren’t as dexterous as they used to be. But there’s still no show on earth like hers.
Performed as part of SMALL PLAYS FOR GIANTS, a 5 play series of highly interactive solo performances for intimate audiences, The Jester And The Dragon is a play about art and age. The audience interacts as children, mourners, and participants in this play celebrating and saying farewell to the legacy of a life dedicated to the arts.
"The two strands of the play together provoked a contemplation of everything from aging and artistry to the destructive power of loneliness and the healing power of laughter." - Jonathan Mandell
