As part of the Chicago International Puppet Festival, we’re partnering with Mocrep and Theater Oobleck to bring you Tedium by acclaimed Chicago playwright Mickle Maher. The play will be adapted by Neo-Futurist Ensemble Member Dan Kerr-Hobert, and accompanied by Mocrep’s Other Sensations, an original work directly inspired by Maher’s text.

Tickets available through the Puppet Festival here!

More about Tedium
The Neo-Futurists explore the absurd text of Theater Oobleck’s Mickle Maher with a barrage of puppet forms at a small tabletop in Tedium, and Mocrep responds in a newly created companion piece, Other Sensations. In a multi-disciplinary journey through déjà vu, meta-theatrical successes and time-bending sonic experiments, a small ensemble of puppeteers and performers soothe the worries and sorrows of the world away.
