A marionette play for adults only. Ages 14 +
Penny Plain is blind, but she hears plenty about the state of things and the fate of mankind. When her companion dog Geoffrey leaves to live as a man, Penny sits waiting for the world to end. But her vigil is interrupted by survivalists, a serial killer, a cross-dressing banker, talking dogs and mysterious strangers seeking sanctuary. Part gothic thriller, part apocalyptic drawing room comedy, Penny Plain shows the horribly funny consequences of mother earth reclaiming her ground.
