The Long Grass Studio and Workshop pulled together a dream team of puppet artists and performers to bring you this delightful, multimedia adult puppet play. Three poems are woven together to create a story of “Old Woman” through the symbolic and iconic lens of puppetry.
The inspiration for this forty-minute play comes from award-winning Canadian poet, Mildred Tremblay. Tremblay was an exceptional woman whose writing is both timeless and timely. She lived through years of dramatic social change for women, recording it with wit and spice, addressing women’s issues and experiences that are still urgently relevant today. Her poems have big, bold feminist themes, softened with curves of humour.
