Festival of Animated Objects: One For Sorrow, Two For Joy

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:05 pm

cSPACE Marda Loop
Studio Theatre

by Juanita Dawn | Runtime: 55 minutes

In this enchanting prairie story, told through puppetry and music, one woman braves adversity and befriends unlikely companions.

Set on the Canadian prairies in the early 1900’s, we explore the remarkable life of a resilient and tenacious woman, Willow Mae O’Reilly.

The magic and wonder of this little girl’s imagination was the seed that germinated into her unconventional life. During her untethered time on the prairies she found her best friend the gopher and her sometime friend the bossy magpie.

These childhood spirits followed her throughout her life. Willow Mae did not always take the road most traveled but she was willing to pay the price for her independence…and that price was often very high.

Beneath the endless sky of the wind-swept prairies, the story of our Willow Mae unfolds revealing a life of complex emotions, unbridled joy and heart breaking sorrow, the right stuff for an unforgettable tale.

One For Sorrow, Two For Joy has over 30 hand crafted puppets and an all original musical score making this show an extravaganza of music and puppetry!
