Warning: do NOT eat the blue candy. It could be an alien’s eyeball, and then anything could happen! In Larry Tremblay’s cosmogony, strange things can become real, especially if they enter the orbit of the puppets from the Théâtre de l’Œil!

The grass is always bluer on the other side of the fence

Marco meets Marco Bleu. He’s a mirror image of Marco, except he’s all blue. On his planet, it’s always a holiday; there are gift machines and a talking candy dispenser. Then, ding! ding!, the bell rings, and Marco has to choose: go back to his exhausted parents and the screaming baby, or stay forever in this fabulous place. A philosophico-spatial dilemma!

The Théâtre de l’Œil’s amazing puppets embrace Larry Tremblay’s writing in this adaptation of the acclaimed children’s graphic novel Même pas vrai. Like the promise of a starry sky!
